Rotherham United striker David Ball has joined New Zealand side Wellington Phoenix agreeing a two year deal with the Fleetwood Weekly News telling us that he’s turned down a number of League One clubs.
Ball came through the Youth Ranks with Manchester City and while there had a loan spell with Swindon Town before joining Peterborough in January 2011. The beginning of the next season he joined Rochdale on loan but was recalled after just a month.
In the summer of 2012 Ball moved to newly promoted Fleetwood Town where he made over one hundred and eighty appearances before moving to the New York Stadium in the summer of 2017. He played thirty-eight times for the Millers in his first season, including a Wembley League One Play-Off where he missed a penalty, scoring nine goals in all competitions. His second season saw him play the first hour in the first game of the season (which was a five-one away loss to Brentford) with his only two other appearances being in the League Cup against Wigan and Everton. In September he joined Bradford City until the end of the season where he played forty-two times, scoring seven times but couldn’t save the Bantams from relegation to League Two.
All at Vital Rotherham wish David ‘all the best’ in his future.
