RUFC - Warrington 'love it here'

RUFC - Warrington 'love it here'

Rotherham United goalkeeper, Andy Warrington, was thrilled to be made captain against Chester City last weekend.

'It's the first time I've been captain and I can't put it into words what an honour it was,' he told The Advertiser. 'Obviously, it was a one off but I enjoyed it. And it so happened it came side by side with me completing a full year of football without missing a match.'

Before he stepped back into action last year, Andy had suffered a year of injury. He broke his leg against Manchester City in the FA Cup in 2005 when he played for Doncaster Rovers and just getting over that he damanged ankle ligaments which he says, altogether, cost him fourteen months out of the game.

'You ask any player, though particularly a 'keeper, and they will tell you that if you play week in and week out then you feel better about yourself.

'Once I got fit I went to Bury on loan until the end of the season. I felt rusty in some of the early games and it wasn't until the end that I began to feel myself improving. But coming here and working with Simon Tracey (goalkeeping coach), day in and day out has knocked off any remaining rust.

'We've a great set of lads here and we gelled quickly as a team and we are getting stronger and stronger.

'We've got a tough month coming up but as long as we keep on picking up points then we should be alright.'
