The hills are alive with the sound of running – Rotherham begin week-long trip in Austria

Rotherham are feeling the pain as their pre-season trip to Austria is under way.

The Millers flew out to Vienna on Sunday for a week-long training camp in the Alps, which will take in two friendlies and endless amount of hill runs.


The 2017 trip to the same venue has been widely credited with building the fitness and spirit that carried Paul Warne’s side to Wembley glory in the last weekend of May and the boss will be aiming to recreate that this year.

He only has three new signings in the camp, following the arrivals of Clark Robertson, Kyle Vassell and Zak Vyner, but there is potential for any new signings to join them as was the case last summer with Ipswich loan pair Kieffer Moore and Josh Emmanuel.

The Millers, who had a triple training session on Monday, which included a 6.15am start, will play their first friendly against Austrian lower league outfit SKU Amstetten on Tuesday.

Their second game will take place on Saturday when they take onĀ SC Wiener Neustadt.
