Evans - It felt fantastic

27 April 2013

Gaffer delighted with promotion...

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was understandably delighted with the scenes that followed the 2-0 victory over Aldershot Town. stole Evans away from the post-match celebrations to give a quick word on his immediate feelings after sealing promotion.

The Millers boss did his best to compose himself to describe how he felt following the victory that earned his side promotion:

“Fantastic. That’s how it feels. I’d like to thank the chairman and his family for their backing. He’s stuck behind me in some dark days this year, when managers need someone to pick them up and there isn’t anyone to do it. Who picks the manager up at Rotherham United? Tony Stewart does. I’m proud to work for him and I’m proud to lead the team with those supporters because they are just incredible.

Evans also reserved special praise for the men that have represented him both on and off the field this season:

“My biggest thanks must go to my playing staff and the rest of my coaching staff who have been great.

“At half-time it was about trying to inspire them and lift them to remind them what we were playing for. We don’t just play for Rotherham United, we play for a cause. There’s a cause in Rotherham and the cause is the club itself. These people are proud working class people and they deserve the success.”
