Evans delight at 'key player' signing

Steve Evans talks to

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans described new signing David Worrall as a ‘key player’ after he made the winger his fourth summer acquisition.


Worrall has penned an initial two-year deal, with the option of a third year, after the Millers and Bury agreed an undisclosed fee for the former West Bromwich Albion flyer.


Evans, currently on a short break before the Millers return for pre-season training next week, was delighted with the deal, which will see Worrall join up with other new faces Joe Skarz, Richard Brindley and Adam Collin on Wednesday.


“I am delighted to have signed David, he will be a key player for us and I thank the Chairman for supporting this,” Evans told


“We tried to agree a transfer fee with Bury five weeks ago but they wanted the new owners to do that. Paul Douglas has worked hard to secure an agreement, firstly with Bury, then the player himself.”


Worrall, a former Bury player of the year, is the second player to join the Millers from the Gigg Lane outfit this summer, after Skarz completed his move in May following a successful loan spell.


“The lad (Worrall) is terrific in either wide area but especially on the right,” added Evans.


“He was outstanding last season and that is why a number of clubs have tried to sign him. I did not have to work hard to sell him Rotherham United or Steve Evans, Joe Skarz did that for me.


“David excites me and he will excite the Millers supporters, he will be a quality addition.”
