Luke ready for Millers challenge

Have your say

NEW boy Luke Foster is determined to prove his worth and improve his all-round performance at Rotherham United.

The Doncaster-born centre-half, who made 23 appearances for Stevenage last season as they secured promotion to League One, signed a one-year deal with the Millers on Monday, with the option for a second year.

He told The Star: “I am only 25 so I am not the finished article. Hopefully under the management team at Rotherham I will become a better player.

“I have shown I can do it at this level because I played a big part in Stevenage’s promotion campaign last year.

“Now I want to become a better player and stay here for as long as possible.”

Foster, who played in the same Barnsley Schoolboys side as Dale Tonge, said he was persuaded into returning to the area by Rotherham boss Andy Scott.

“The manager has got a lot going for him,” he said. “He has done well at his previous clubs and I was really impressed with what he said to me when I first arrived. It filled me with a lot of confidence.

“I had two to three good deals on the table and I had mutually agreed something with another club over the phone but all of a sudden I got a call from Rotherham saying they were interested in signing me and that blew everybody else out of the water.”
