READ | Frecklington departs Millers

11 January 2018

Lee Frecklington signs for Lincoln City...

Rotherham United can confirm that midfielder Lee Frecklington has joined Lincoln City for an undisclosed fee.

Frecklington finalised his return to Sincil Bank where he began his career as a professional.

The 32-year-old joined the Millers in 2012, initially on loan, before later making the move from Peterborough United a permanent one.

He went on to help the Millers to promotion that season scoring on the final day against Aldershot Town to secure the club’s place in League One before tasting success again, this time at Wembley, as the Millers defeated Leyton Orient in the Play-offs to gain promotion to the Championship a year later.

Frecklington made 170 appearances for the Millers in all competitions, scoring 30 goals.

Manager Paul Warne hailed the contribution of his former skipper, stating he has written himself permanently into the club's history books:

"Frecks has been brilliant. Ever since I've been here second time around, most of the good moments we have had, he has been part of. He will go down in folklore here.

"He moves on now and goes to his home town club which is a good move for him with two young children. Everyone here wishes him all the best.

"The situation arose, and the money was offered. We weren't phoning clubs asking them to take him, but it was something that he and Lincoln really wanted to do, so it made sense in the end for all parties.

"Football goes on. It is our task now to sign the next Lee Frecklington who will be here for three, four, five years in our midfield. He has had a big part to play in this club's success and he goes with our best wishes."

Everyone at Rotherham United would like to thank Lee for his contribution, on and off the field, to the club over the past five years. We wish him every success in the future.
