RUFC - Focus On ..Mick Priest

One of Rotherham United's summer incomers is Mick Priest, who has taken over as Head of Youth at Millmoor.

Mick has been talking to the Official Site today about his time before he came to Millmoor and his time since he joined the Millers in July.

'I had seven seasons with the Youth Team at Manchester United,' Mick says, 'and then I went to Oldham Athletic where I initially worked with younger children for three seasons, though I also helped out with the Under Fifteen and Youth teams.

'Then I moved to Millmoor this summer and work closely with Steve Thornber, who is the coach of the Youth team. I also look after the Centre of Excellence and the school boys.

'As for the Youth squad, I haven't really seen any of them play a game yet so I can't tell if any of them have any potential for the first team.

'Although, of course every player should have potential but it is down to the individual as to what they do with the potential they have. There is the Youth Alliance Cup coming up but the big one is the FA Youth Cup because if you do well in that you get a good reputation and it develops the programme.

'The main ambition for the Youth team is to be pushing for number one in the First team. Hopefully, we will have a few ready if the Manager should need to call upon them.

'Personally, I would love for one of the Youth team to progress to the First team and make a career out of football.'
