Rotherham United goalkeeper, Jamie Annerson said that he really enjoyed his league debut for the Millers after the win at Crewe on Saturday.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the twenty-two year old, who has played the last three Cup games for the Millers said, ‘I signed at the start of last season permanently from Sheffield United and last season I was chomping at the bit trying to get on but, obviously, Andy (Warrington) had a hundred per cent record last year. So I`ve had a few chances this year in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy and FA Cup games but I`m delighted at how today has gone.`

After making a couple of good saves, one especially in the first half, former Blades ‘keeper Jamie said, ‘We were one up and we wanted to go in at half-time still one up but then Crewe had a little spell so it was nice to be able to do my bit for the team.`

Asked about his working relationship with Andy Warrington, Jamie said, ‘Andy and I have a good working relationship and he helps me a lot in training and I always think he should be playing in the league above! I`m sure he`ll be pleased for me today. Though, I`ve done well today and in mid-week so I hope I`m putting a lot of pressure on him and I hope I`ve put a question in the manager`s mind.

‘I`m one of the quieter lads in the dressing room and I`ve been doing extra work this season and hope when the chances do come my way they will all end up like this one today. I don`t want to be sitting on the bench and, at the start of the season, I asked about going out on loan but I`m enjoying it here at the moment and training with Andy and Dibbs (Andy Dibble) is brilliant and they`re bringing me along a lot.

I`m out of contract in the summer so it`s a massive year for me this year.’
