RUFC - Q & A with Jamie Yates!

RUFC - Q & A with Jamie Yates!

Rotherham United's Jamie Yates fired himself into Millers fans hearts when he came on as substitute against Morecambe and bagged himself two goals.

He was also Rotherham Vital's Player of the Month for October and we were pleased when he agreed to answer our questions:

1. What was the main contributory fact that made you choose to join the Millers?
To have a realistic chance of becoming a professional, rather than go to a bigger club

2. Who are the best players you've played with and against in your careers?
Probably Will Hoskins along with Paul Hurst
Against Brian Deane, Keith Gillespie and Neil Shipperly


3. Do you think there should be a cap on the number of foreign players per squad, in order to enhance the progression of home-bred players in the English Leagues?
Definitely I feel developing home grown players is essential to English football

4. What are your realistic hopes and ambitions for your time at Millmoor?
To play as many games as possible and score as many goals.

5. How does the Millmoor playing surface compare with other clubs?
One of the best I've played on as good as anybody in the league!

6. Who has been your toughest opponent so far in your career?
Alan Wright, ex Villa, Sheffield Utd

7. Who's the biggest joker in the Millmoor camp, and do you have any stories that can be told to highlight this?
Andy Todd he never shuts up, the busiest man in League football

8. Who has been the biggest influence on your career so far?
The Gaffer, Alan Knill and Mick Hennigan

9. What is your routine on match days?
To lie in, have a light breakfast and to watch soccer am.

10. Training....enjoyment or a burden
Pure enjoyment, at my age every session should be.

11. What is the highlight of your career so far?
Making my debut at Brentford last season and scoring my first two senior goals last week vs. Morecambe

12. How much difference does it make having the fans singing/chanting at home/away games?
Great to see the fans turn up they have been excellent so far this year.

13. Is there any player, not now playing, who you would love to have played alongside?
Yes, Dennis Bergkamp

14. How much influence has your family had on your football lives?
A massive one without them I would not be where I am now.

15. Be honest, what did you actually know of Rotherham before you signed for us?
I was only 9 years old when I came here but I knew a lot of the South Yorkshire club.

Thank you, Jamie! And Good Luck for the rest of the season!
