RUFC - Oh Bobby, Bobby, returns

Rotherham United entertain Chester City tomorrow with ex striker, Bobby Williamson, coming back to Millmoor as The Blue's boss.

Speaking to The Star and Chester's Official Site, the ex cult hero spoke about his time at Millmoor, 'I was at West Brom playing in the reserves when Billy McEwan brought me to Millmoor,' he recalls. 'I enjoyed my time at Millmoor because I was quite a prolific goalscorer and I enjoyed being part of a successful team.

'It was a good all round team we had in those days and we had a decent side with Clive Mendonca there and I had some great service from the likes of Tony Grealish and Des Hazel.'

It will be good to come back and meet up with some old friends.'

Williamson, who played between the years of 1988 and 1991, made more than ninety appearances for The Millers including the promotion season of 88/89 when Rotherham went up from the old Division Four as Champions.

My best memory of Bobby was when he scored his back-to-back hat tricks against Cardiff and Birmingham and the time he stopped the coach as they were about to set off for an away game so my son could get his autograph.

Welcome back to Millmoor Bobby - but I hope you are a little sad when the ref blows his final whistle tomorrow evening!
