Manager – Paul Warne

Norwich-born Warne started playing non-League football for Great Yarmouth Town, before moving on to Diss Town, with whom he won the FA Vase in 1994.

He began his professional career at the age of 23 when he signed for Wigan Athletic, before moving to Rotherham, where he played over 250 games in all competitions. He then moved to Oldham, where he became a firm fan favorite during his time there, helping the club to the League One playoffs in the 2006/2007 season, before eventually moving to Yeovil on a free transfer.

During the summer of 2009, after failing to agree a new deal with Yeovil, he joined his former club Rotherham United.

In November 2016, after the resignation of Kenny Jackett, Warne was appointed caretaker manager of Rotherham United. In April 2017, with Rotherham's relegation from the Championship confirmed Warne was appointed permanent manager of the club on a one-year rolling contract.

During his time he has won three promotions to the Championship with the Millers, as well as the EFL Trophy last season.

Notable names to have connections between the two clubs are Mark Robins, Richard Wood, Jonson Clarke-Harris, Ryan Giles, Julian Darby, Dean Emerson.
