Richard Wood’s 2020 vision for Rotherham as he pens new contract

Richard Wood latest magic trick has seen him earn a second new contract in the space of six months as he looks set to finish his career at Rotherham.

The 33-year-old only penned a new deal in January which took him through to next summer, but he has now agreed a lengthier stay to 2020.


Today’s new contract is the reward for a brilliant end to the 2017/18 campaign which saw him lead the Millers to League One promotion, capping it off with both goals in the play-off final at Wembley.

He will not quite be boss Paul Warne’s beautiful assistant, but as the most experienced player in the squad, his presence has been deemed vital with a young group taking on the Championship.

The defender, who has played 94 times for the Millers, knows his role.

“It will be difficult this season but we are looking forward to the challenge,” he said.

“It is nice to have everything all sorted. I can now focus on helping the lads, trying to lead them.

“I am the experienced head in the dressing room so I just want to help everyone, and now I don’t need to worry about my personal security because it is all sorted.”
