There’s some good news for Jamie Proctor ahead of Rotherham’s pre-season return next week

Jamie Proctor will be part of the main group when Rotherham return to pre-season training on Monday.

The striker had virtually all of his 2017-18 campaign wiped out with a serious knee injury which he suffered in August.

There was some suggestion Proctor might have recovered in time for the play-offs, but that did not happen and leading the team out at Wembley was the extent of his involvement.

But with the players back at Roundwood for pre-season next Monday, boss Paul Warne has said he will resume training.

“He will come in and join the group, he hasn’t had any contact yet so he will be running next week,” Warne revealed.

“He will be in the group and we are looking forward to having him back. He was a big part of what we were trying to do last year but unfortunately it was cut short, hence why I wanted him to lead the team out at Wembley.”

Proctor looked set to be a key player for the Millers last season, having enjoyed a brilliant pre-season and start to the campaign.

With the season ultimately ruined, Warne hopes his striker can make up for lost time.

“He is a great human, a great athlete, has a great family and it’s great to have him back,” the boss added. “You don’t get many years as a professional footballer, if you are lucky you get 15 and has had one taken away from him.

“He’ll be back that is great for everyone.”
