former Millers favourite Adam Le Fondre is set to turn out at the New York Stadium.

The ace goal poacher has agreed to join a host of old Rotherham United favourites who will be lining up for Paul Warne’s Testimonial game on Tuesday, April 30.

‘Alf’ will still be embroiled in Reading’s Premier League survival fight but has said he wants to come back to honour Millers legend Warne and join in with those returning especially for this one-off game, possibly against a Sheffield Legends side.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding promotion and play-off issues, Paul decided his Testimonial game would involve a Millers Legends side including many who played alongside him during Rotherham’s back-to-back promotion seasons in 2000 and 2001 and then The Championship.

Everybody he has asked to be involved have said yes and ‘Warney’, now on the backroom staff after a Millers playing career that began in 1999, has had confirmation from Alan Lee, Mark Robins, Mike Pollitt, Darren Byfield, Paul Hurst, Rob Scott, Chris Sedgwick, Kevin Watson, Chris Swailes, Guy Branston, Darren Garner, Stuart Talbot, Richie Barker, John Mullin, Dave Artell, Leo Fortune-West, Andy Monkhouse, Steve Thompson, Ryan Cresswell, Andy Warrington and Chris Wolstenholme, bass player with top band Muse, who is a big Millers fan.
