Will Vaulks earns place in Millers history books with 200th league goal at New York Stadium

Not only did Will Vaulks score the goal that gave Rotherham an important 2-1 win over MK Dons on Saturday he also earned himself a little piece of Millers history.

The 24-year-old, who excelled in a central defensive position against the Dons, powered in from the edge of the area for his fourth strike of the season.


In doing so he scored Rotherham’s 200th league goal at the AESSEAL New York Stadium and puts his name alongside some famous figures in the club’s recent history.

Daniel Nardiello famously scored the first goal in the club’s new home, scoring a fifth-minute penalty in the League Two opener against Burton in 2012.

The former Manchester United striker also scored the Millers’ 50th league goal there, with his first against Oldham in 2013.

Skipper Lee Frecklington, always at the forefront of the club’s most recent history, fittingly notched the 100th strike with his Boxing Day equaliser against Huddersfield in 2014.

And an unlikely name brought up the 150th, with Huddersfield again the opponents as Greg Halford struck the opener in the 2016 1-1 draw.

The gap between the 150th and 200th goals was bigger than any of the previous 50-goal landmarks, taking 36 games.
