Rotherham United captain Ryan Cresswell says new manager Andy Scott has to bring in new signings to challenge for promotion next season.
The Millers fizzled out during the second half of the season to finish outside the play-off positions. Scott has already announced who is leaving but Cresswell expects several new faces when pre-season begins.
He said: “He’s got to, he’s got to freshen it up. Rotherham United will be a new team next season and I think from top to bottom you’ll see a difference.
“I still think of it (last season) as a disappointment but maybe we need to brush it under the carpet and get on with it; put it in the past and move forward.
“It’s exciting times at Rotherham United and it is for everyone in Rotherham. We’re moving forward and let’s start that in pre-season.”
Cresswell, helped by Year 7 pupils from Winterhill School, launched the Millers’ new away kit. The new home kit was unveiled in April.
The black kit with red and white trim features the ‘One Town, One Community’ message from the town’s Local Strategic Partnership
