"From my point of view, this isn't a step back," he says. "My contract was coming up for renewal at Stockport and they've got a few money issues. I see Rotherham as an up-andcoming club. They've got a new chairman and plans for a new stadium and I was happy to come here.

"I think Breck took note of me. I'd spoken to him and Mark Robins a few times recently and knew Rotherham were keen.

"They sold the club very well to me and made it clear they want to get back to the Championship in the next four to five years. There's a healthy squad here-about 20-odd pros-and with Mark Robins you're learning from one of the best. He's played in the top league.

"He's been about and got great experience and he's taking that into management.

"Looking at our situation here, the first aim is to get as many points on the board as we can so we're not looking behind us. Then we should definitely be aiming for promotion next year.

"Wembley was another good incentive to come here," added Taylor. "The lads have done great to get to the northern final and I just hope I can be part of it and help them win it.

"I got injured just before the play-offs last season for Stockport and I was on the bench at Wembley when we played Rochdale. It was still a good experience but I'd love to go back there and play."

Boss Mark Robins added: "He's like a young Stewart Talbot and we've not had a player like him since, Talbot was different class. He was great in the dressing room and a good leader and we've lacked those qualities.

"Jason will make a big, big difference. He's the type of player I've wanted to bring in for a while and now I've got him I'm looking forward to working with him.

"I'm delighted to get him because we beat off competition from a number of other clubs. He's here for two-and-a-half years atleast and he wants to be part of what we're trying to do.

"With his qualities, he's an ideal sortof player in this division but he's also able to play in the one above. Every game he's played in this season for Stockport they've won."
