READ | Ollie crowned PA Entertainments x Terrace Threads Man of the Match crown following Bromley display

8 November 2021

Rotherham United midfielder Ollie Rathbone has enjoyed a fine start to life in South Yorkshire and helped himself to another PA Entertainments x Terrace Threads Man of the Match award at the weekend.

Rathbone – signed from Rochdale in the summer – has done himself no harm in endearing himself to the Millers faithful with his energetic displays in the middle of the park.

And this is what he provided in their Emirates FA Cup tie with Bromley, often pulling the strings in the engine room, which helped the Millers to a comfortable passage through to the next round, courtesy of a 3-0 victory at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

The midfielder showed great awareness to let Chiedozie Ogbene’s 43rd minute cross slip through his legs for Ben Wiles to lash home for the opening goal and was unlucky not to score himself with an effort in the second half.

Ollie is part of an impressive midfield trio assembled in recent weeks, with Wiles and Dan Barlaser continuing to impress at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

The former Manchester United man’s display saw him earn the supporters’ vote with a landslide 56.7% majority, with Will Grigg, skipper Richard Wood and Dan Barlaser also nominated for the crown.

Background

This poll is supported by our friends at PA Entertainments and Terrace Threads.

PA Entertainments have been long-term supporters of the football club and were hailed for their recent work which involved them lighting up the AESSEAL New York Stadium in the colours of the NHS and more recently, with the image of a poppy for Armistice Day.

Supporters may be aware that we recently welcomed Terrace Threads on-board, who took up the option of sponsoring our newly-produced ‘Goal Gifs’ for the duration of the 2021/22 campaign.

Following discussions between the two parties, they have collaborated to give supporters an added incentive to vote for our Twitter Man of the Match Poll, with fans who cast a vote and retweet our social media poll automatically entered into a prize draw to win a free Beanie Hat from Terrace Threads.

The PA Entertainments Man of the Match and the lucky winner of the £50 Terrace Threads voucher will be revealed on a Monday morning following a Saturday fixture or midday on the day after a midweek fixture.

The next opportunity for supporters to pick their Man of the Match is when the Millers host Cambridge United in Sky Bet League One, on Saturday 20th November.
