Evans pleased with Ayr preparations

12 July 2013

Millers boss comments on training...

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans was back on the training ground with his players today prior to the final game of the Millers’ pre-season tour north of the border against Ayr United tomorrow.

The Millers travel to Somerset Park to compete four days before the first game of pre-season at New York Stadium on Tuesday when Bolton Wanderers come to town, and the Millers boss says they’re in a good position ahead of tomorrow’s encounter. 

“It was good today,” said Evans. “The lads had a bit of a down day yesterday, they trained in the morning and then a few of them went out on the golf course in the afternoon and a couple went for a walk on the beach just to bring their bodies down to normal levels. Today has been bright, they looked sharp, and now they can rest this afternoon before a small training session in the morning and then off to Ayr.”

The Millers opponents tomorrow are no strangers to Evans, who had a spell as a youngster there during his playing career, and with good numbers likely to make the journey north, he told Millers Player exactly what can be expected.

“It’s a good club, with good people, and a bit like the Millers if you support Ayr United you live and breathe it. It’s the first time I’ve been back with a team so it will be nice, and I’m looking forward to it. The net will be a bit less worn than when I was there, but the pitch will be magnificent and with a good travelling support from Rotherham it will be a party.”
