Former Yeovil Town striker Kieran Agard has landed a trial with League Two side Rotherham United. After being released at the end of last season, Agard had been linked with the Millers earlier in the summer, but without those rumours being confirmed.
Last night though, the 22 year old turned out in a pre-season friendly at Rotherham's New York Stadium, coming on as a substitute against Doncaster Rovers. The former Everton trainee didn't do too badly either, scoring a 70th minute winning goal in a 2-1 win for the Millers, ten minutes after his introduction.
The Millers opened their new 12,000 capacity stadium on Saturday, and so last night was their second game in their new surroundings. The 'New York' naming is actually after the suburb in Rotherham town centre in which it is situated, and nothing to do with the American city. Built at a cost of £20 million, the stadium ultimately replaces Millmoor, having spent four years exiled at the Don Valley Athletics Stadium in Sheffield.
Meanwhile former Yeovil Town youth team defender Jordan Street has signed for Bromsgrove Sporting this summer. Since leaving Yeovil Town, Jordan has played for a variety of clubs in the West Midlands area, including Kidderminster Harriers, Redditch United and Bromsgrove Rovers. The Bromsgrove Sporting club play in the Midland Combination Premier Division, and were formed in 2009 as a breakaway club for the more senior Rovers side, after they fell into administration. With Rovers having since been liquidated, the Sporting club are run by a Supporters Trust and have taken control of the Victoria Ground.
