Rotherham United’s, I feel, almost forgotten man, Tom Cahill told The Advertiser he is looking forward to the challenge.

Cahill, twenty, says he is ready to fight for his shirt after having a minor operation to remove a cyst from his knee.

‘I was a bit worried when I wasn’t able to train with the lads,’ he said, ‘but I have done my own pre-season work and it shouldn’t be long before I’m back.’

Cahill was brought in by Mark Robins after just having a brief trial with the reserves and having him watched when he played for Matlock Town. He seems to be a confident young man and professes to have no fear, ‘I genuinely have nothing to lose,’ he said, ‘I know it sounds stupid but I know I’ll cut it.

‘It was a dream opening for me when Rotherham came in for me and with eleven new faces here it was a little bit difficult. But there are seasoned pro’s here and everyone has eased in in their own time.

‘They are a good set of lads and the camaraderie is starting to come together.

‘But I know come the start of the season everyone will be each other’s best mate as well as their worst enemy as we fight for places!’
