Rotherham United’s former skipper Ryan Cresswell says that he has ‘nothing to prove’ when he returns to Rotherham this weekend with his new club Southend.

Rotherham born Cress was brought to the Millers by former Manager Ronnie Moore in the summer of 2010, although he had played for Rotherham before in 2007 on loan from neighbours Sheffield United. He suffered a few injuries while with Rotherham but still played over forty times and scored nine goals, though, in his last game for the Millers he was sent off.

Speaking to Southend’s Official Site, Cress said, ‘I had some good times at Rotherham along with a couple of bad injuries that made things stop and start for me. Everyone at Rotherham United knows what I can do as they have seen plenty of me before so I have nothing to prove. The only person I  have anything to prove to is the gaffer here at Southend United and I need to prove to him that I am worthy of the shirt and can play every game.

‘I was born and bred in Rotherham and I grew up watching them at Millmoor and I still have family and friend there. But, although I have an association with them, on Saturday they are the enemy and I want to take three points off them.’

The twenty-four year old joined Southend in August and has scored four goals in thirteen appearances.
