MILLERS DUO ARRIVE AT STAMFORD
10th January 2013
Rotherham United duo Mitchell Rose and Alec Denton have joined the Daniels on loan.
Rose, a tough-tackling midfielder, and Denton, a striker, will initially spend a month at the club and are available to make their debuts this Saturday against Leek Town.
Both players have featured for Rotherham's reserves and have also made a handful of appearances for the first team in League 2.
Rose has made four appearances for Steve Evans' side, while Denton stepped off the bench in the final match of last season to make his first-team debut.
The pair will be familiar to the Daniels having played for Rotherham in the pre-season friendly at Kettering Road, when front man Denton found the net twice.
Manager Wayne Hatswell spoke of his delight with the signings, saying: “Even though the two lads are young, they will add a lot to the squad.
“These players are going to be playing a lot higher than what we are at the minute and they were going to go to clubs at a much higher level than us but I have managed to get hold of them.
“Mitchell will give us another youthful pair of legs in midfield, as well as getting around the pitch. He's tenacious and we just felt that the midfield was an area we could add to.
“Alec is a striker and he scored twice against Stamford in pre-season so the two centre-half boys will know about him. Hopefully he can come here and score goals for us.
“Even though they are young they both have a few league appearances between them so we're getting players that have played in the Football League and that's a massive plus for the club.
“I have to thank Steve [Evans] for giving us the chance to have the two boys and hopefully they will hit the ground running for us.”
