Millers Abroad - Sam Quinn

10 June 2016

Our next Miller abroad is Sam Quinn from London Ontario, Canada...

1. When did you become a fan of Rotherham United FC?
I started watching the Millers when I was about 4 or 5, around 1992/93. My dad would take me and my sister to games at Millmoor.

Admittedly i didn't go to too many games growing up and my passion for the club really took off after moving as funny as it sounds, I was always more of a Rugby League fan than football.

2. How do you follow the club?
On the (super rare) occasion Rotherham are on television here I watch the games at the pub with friends, I think there have been 7 or 8 games since I moved in 2004.

I have a subscription to Millers Player and tune into listen to the games at 10am on Saturdays and 2:45pm on Tuesday's.

I'm always constantly on Twitter keeping up with all the latest news (@tigersammy)

3. Do you ever have the opportunity to attend matches?
I try to get to games once every two or three years, but I only ever show up for the big games (Such as Tranmere Rovers at home on a cold wet Tuesday evening!)

The last game I saw live in person was in 2015, Rotherham v Brighton where the Millers won 1-0!

4. Have you always been a fan of the club from abroad?
Of course, it reminds me of home, even though I am 3,500 miles away, my heart is still in Rotherham!

I've also been able to convert a couple of Canadians to start supporting the Millers

5. What are your greatest memories of Rotherham United FC?
Hard to beat the wins at Wembley, also against Brentford in 2001, Alan Lee's winner to send us up to Division 1.

Thanks to Sam for getting in touch!
