Danny Schofield

Schofield spent the majority of his career at Huddersfield Town, staying there for 10 years.

He did however spend time at both Rotherham and Halifax in the latter years of his career. He joined Rotherham in 2011 but never managed to secure a starting first team spot as he made 37 league appearances in three years.

The Midfielder joined Halifax after leaving Rotherham and stayed at the club for for just one season, but he did feature quite heavily throughout playing 35 times in the league scoring one goal.

Chris Wilder

Wilder spent four years at Rotherham as a player, joining the club in 1992. He was a integral part of the side and played 132 league matches at the club. He played more times for Rotherham than any other club.

He finished his playing career at Halifax, where he spent two years as a player and made 51 league appearances, before leaving to pursue a career as a manager.

The former player returned to Town just a year later, this time as the manager, and would have a long stint in charge, staying as manager for 6 years and over 300 games but left when the club went into liquidation in 2008.

Steve Thompson

The former Midfielder played over 600 league games in a professional career which lasted for 20 years.

Three of those years was spent with Rotherham in the late 90’s and made 106 appearances for the club, scoring 14 goals. This was one of three teams that he would represent over 100 times in the league.

He moved to Town from from Rotherham in 2000 and played at the Shay for just one season, managing two goals in 36 matches.
