'If It's Football, It's Vital'

3 ex-Millers in P.F.A team

3 former Rotherham United players were rewarded for their good performances this season with places in the Professional Footballers Associations teams of the year, announced at the annual awards ceremony last night in London's Grosvenor House.
The League one team contained no current Millers players, but former reds,Jon Otsemobor of Crewe and Ian Breckin of promotion chasing Nottingham Forest made the team.

Meanwhile, the league 2 team included former Miller Andy Monkhouse who is currently helping Hartlepool United towards the League 2 Championship.

Included in the Championship team is Gary McSheffrey, who had a trial spell for Rotherham during 2003.
Unfortunately after poor displays in the Isle of Man tournament for The Millers he was sent back to Coventry and subsequently loaned to Luton Town.
He is now with promotion chasing Birmingham City.

Jon OTSEMOBOR - Crewe

Jon joined Crewe from Rotherham in January 2006 and has made the right back slot his own this season. His polished performances on the flank have not gone unnoticed by clubs in higher divisions and Norwich have already declared their intention to make a summer move for the promising 24-year-old.


Ian BRECKIN - Nottingham Forest

Breckin is the lynchpin in Nottingham Forests rearguard and his experience and organisational skills have been a big reason why the club are in a position to challenge for promotion. Forest fans voted the former Rotherham, Chesterfield and Wigan defender their Player of the Year last season and he has enjoyed another solid campaign.

Andrew MONKHOUSE - Hartlepool

Only fitting that a player called Monkhouse - 'Monkey' to his mates - should find himself playing for the 'Monkeyhangers', but that's the story for Andy, and it's been a happy one since he joined the club last year, initially on loan, because that was when Pool embarked on their record unbeaten run. What's more Andy had the pleasure of scoring the winner against his old club Swindon.

I don't think Otsemobor was given a lot of chances. Well Done to them all

Well done from me too!! I was one of the few who rated Andy Monkhouse, don't remember much about Otsemobor though, so he obviously never caught my eye!!!
