Anthony Forde talks to www.themillers.co.uk...New signing Anthony Forde admits he can’t wait to get started in Rotherham United colours after agreeing a three-year deal at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
The highly-rated winger, who joined from Walsall for an undisclosed fee on Thursday, has set his sights on establishing himself in the second tier after an impressive campaign with the Saddlers which saw them miss out on promotion in the Play-offs.
Forde is keen to take the next step in his career with the Millers and is confident that he can make the step up after becoming Alan Stubbs’ first signing as Rotherham United boss.
“I know they want to play football and it’s an upcoming club and I know I can come in and hopefully make an impression and hopefully have a good season in the Championship,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.
“Now is the next step again and I need to prove myself in the Championship and I think I’m ready for it now.”
“Obviously I wanted to play in the Championship and we were unlucky at Walsall not to get promoted last year.
“I was delighted that Rotherham came in and to be playing in the Championship is what I want and hopefully I can push the club forward.”
The 22-year-old Irishman is the first new face among the Millers group but with a gruelling pre-season programme imminent and a trip to Poland on the horizon, Forde is looking forward to getting back amongst the action with his new teammates.
“I can’t wait to get back into it, I’ve had a nice holiday but you look forward to getting back into a routine and I’m looking forward to getting started now,” he explained.
“Especially getting away you’re going to be with the group and it should be a good trip and obviously I’ll get to know the lads out there and it should be really good."
