Rotherham have made Sean Raggett their fifth summer signing after he joined from Norwich on loan.

Raggett will spend the season at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, though the Canaries can recall him in January.

 

Here’s five things you need to know about the new arrival.

Part-timer

Raggett came through the youth system at Gillingham before joining Dover as a 16-year-old, with the Kent club not full-time. He made over 150 appearances for them and also had dual registrations and loan spells at the likes of Sittingbourne, Herne Bay and Whitstable.

International honours

When he was at Dover as a 21-year-old he received a call-up to the England C squad for the game against the Republic of Ireland.

Making history for Lincoln

His form for Dover earned him a move to Lincoln in 2016 and he was an integral part of the Imps’ return to the Football League. But his most famous act was scoring the winning goal against Premier League Burnley that made Lincoln become the first non-league side to reach the FA Cup quarter-final for 103 years.

New York outing

After that impressive season for Lincoln he was bought by Norwich in the summer of 2017, but immediately returned to Sincil Bank on loan for the first half of the 2017-18 season. As a result he has experience of playing at New York as he was in the Imps team that lost to Rotherham in the Carabao Cup.

Putting his body on the line

Raggett is a wholehearted defender who will put his body on the line for the cause. Don’t believe us? Here’s the evidence.
