A MEMO to all footballers interested in joining Andy Scott’s revolution at Rotherham United; they must have an unquenchable appetite to reach the top.

Scott is determined to lead the club out of League Two and is contemplating bringing in as many as six new faces during the close season.

He has vowed to turn the Millers into one of the fittest sides in the division. But, above everything, Scott wants his new recruits to be winners.

“There are going to be new players coming in and the fans are going to see a new Rotherham United next year,” chairman Tony Stewart told The Star. “This is a new beginning.

“The manager knows what we has and knows what is needed. He will fill the gaps and get players in who are used to having success in this league.

“He wants people with drive, determination and passion and who have the same ambition as the club.”

It promises to be a summer of change at Rotherham and Scott is currently drawing up his shopping list.

A centre-back is thought to be Scott’s number one priority, having released experienced defender Nick Fenton.

Stewart said: “I have been really impressed with the impact Andy has made. He is certainly methodical and he is bringing fresh ideas to the table all the time.

“He is well organised and has a great work ethic about him. He knows what we require and I think we are going to have a real good go at it [promotion]. Andy has set off on the right footing so I’m really encouraged.”

Meanwhile, Rotherham have added three further fixtures to their pre-season schedule. Scott’s men face a trip to Stocksbridge Park Steels on Tuesday July 26 for a 7.45pm kick off at Bracken Moor.

A day later, the first-team will entertain Scunthorpe United, who are managed by former Millers boss Alan Knill.

Rotherham will also visit Parkgate FC on Monday August 1. Kick-off is 7pm.
