Former Keeper Cutler routing for Millers

Last updated : 01 May 2009 By Bigrich.....
Neil Cutler will be routing for the Millers tomorrow, the former keeper who had to quit the game after leaving the Millers with a serious back injury is now coaching at promotion hopefuls Bury.

Should the Millers beat Exeter, Bury who is managed by former Miller Alan Knill could claim the last promotion place.

Cutt's looks back at having to quit the game: "I had loads of epidural injections towards the end of my time at Rotherham and I just could not carry on. After that last game was against Bristol I couldn't run for five months. I was in the gym every day trying to build my back up." Cutler said.

"I started doing part-time coaching at Hereford and Bury but then Alan Knill asked me to knock Hereford on the head and go full-time with him. It's been a really good season and I can't complain so far. Promotion really would seal it." he added.

Cutler is teaching 6 to 16-year-olds in the midlands and works with the youths and first team at Bury; "The important thing is that I've kept within the confines of the game and you can't argue with that. It's a great job,"

"Yes, I'm at an age where I'd be coming into my peak as a goalkeeper but you can't think 'what if.' Now is the next phase of my career and it's a new one and it's something I really want to get my teeth stuck into and be the best at it I can be."

"Rotherham have done really well getting the point they have and not only making sure they survived, but finishing not too far off the play-offs. Don Valley is so open and windy, it can't be easy playing there every other week. So much has changed at Rotherham since I left but I like the way they're heading and the new stadium will be the platform for big things." he said.
