Rotherham United: Millers star says momentum is key

Millers defender Joe Skarz reckons they can take the momentum of last season’s finale into their League One campaign.

If they do that, he says, there is a feeling in the camp that they can do well.

“We got a winning momentum at the end of the season including the win at Bradford City which, for me, was a pivotal result for our promotion,” said Skarz.

“Look, we know the challenge League One will represent but the lads all said that teams with momentum seem to do really well.

“That’s right, momentum is important and will be key but we have to work hard in pre-season and look to get a good start.

“It is important we keep the players too but that won’t be a problem when you listen to the ambitions of the chairman and the manager.”

“There are some really competitive teams,” added Skarz who played in League One last season at Bury, “and there’s certainly no room for complacency in that division.”

Skarz this week modelled the club’s new grey away strip with the club saying they’re delighted to have a Rotherham company, with Millers fans at the head of it, backing it.

Away shirt sponsors TGB Sheds are based in the town at Eastwood with a major distribution point in Fife in Scotland and operate as manufacturers and distribute UK wide.

Managing Director Graham Vernon, from Mexborough, and director Richard Firth, from Rawmarsh, are both lifelong Rotherham United supporters and have signed a two year sponsorship deal for the shirts.

They set up their company six years ago and, last year, bought out the company they both previously worked for.

“We go to away games and will be particularly proud to do so next season for obvious reasons” said Graham. “We have had ambitions to become involved in the club and are delighted to do so. We have been involved in sponsorship and New York Stadium is certainly a great venue for clients.”
