THE time spent in League Two throughout last season proved an invaluable experience claims Rotherham United loan goalkeeper Rhys Taylor.

The 21-year-old, who joined from Chelsea on Monday initially for a month, played 44 games for Crewe on loan last season which included saving a penalty from Adam Le Fondre in Rotherham’s 1-0 win at Gresty Road.

“Last season was an eye opener for me,” said Rhys. “It’s massively important coming here now to know what life is like in League Two and what it’s about at this level.

“In the latter part of the season I did start to struggle a bit but had no goalkeeping coach to help me.

“I’ll have Andy Dibble here to help and to talk to as goalkeeping coach but I also think I’m wiser and know the score a bit more.

“I’m looking forward to being at Rotherham and want to help them get promotion. The manager is positive and they are moving forward and have potential what with moving into a new stadium.”
