The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Tom Black­ett

ROTHER­HAM UNITED have ap­pointed Nicky Eaden as their new as­sis­tant man­ager on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The former Barns­ley and Birm­ing­ham de­fender has re­joined former team-mate and cur­rent Millers boss Neil Red­fearn, fill­ing the void left by Eric Black.

Sh­effield-born Eaden has ex­pe­ri­ence as No. 2 to Mark Cooper at Peter­bor­ough United and Ket­ter­ing. He re­joins the Millers af­ter a brief spell work­ing un­der Andy Lid­dell in 2011.

“Nicky has re­ally good ex­pe­ri­ence at this level and has a good coach­ing back­ground,” said Red­fearn.

“He has ex­pe­ri­ence (of the job) at Peter­bor­ough and has worked suc­cess­fully with the de­vel­op­ment group at Le­ices­ter.

“He is good at work­ing with and de­vel­op­ing play­ers – and that was re­ally key to bring­ing him here.”

The 43-year-old has most re­cently been in­volved as a coach in the Le­ices­ter City Un­der-21 set-up.
