Petrit Elbi may have secured a vital three points for the Millers last night but it was an overly excitable 'commentator' that stole the headlines.

Filmed by Richard Serowka for use on the club website, footage of Petrit Elbi's goal has made the Sun Newspaper Online with the headline "Meet football’s most excited non-league commentator" which you can view here.

The young man - who has been seen at other non-league grounds in the region - was impersonating a BBC Essex commentator, including giving 'live' updates from Upton Park where West Ham United were facing Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

When Elbi came on in the 62nd minute with the scores at 0-0 in the Ryman League North game against Harlow, the excentric commentator described Elbi as a "Romford Legend" and his legendary status was cemented - in his eyes at least - with his 93rd minute thunderbolt which won the game for the Millers.

The link to the Sun Newspaper article is below as well as a link to the video on our website, along with post match reaction from Justin Gardner and Elbi himself.
