..... quickly to secure the services of npower Championship side Middlesbrough's former youth team captain Daryl Robson as he looks to ensure the Millers are able to consolidate this time around after a late reprieve ensured Step 3 status for the 2011/12 campaign.
Robson, now 22, started his career at the Riverside and helped Boro win the FA Youth Cup.
After his release he signed with Irish side Galway United in July 2007.
He left Galway a year later to sign for Bray Wanderers where he made a dozen appearances over two seasons in the League of Ireland.
He returned to Engand and signed for then Conference National side Grays Athletic in September 2009, and played eight games for them before leaving to play for Hemel Hempstead Town.
In May 2010 Robson relocated to the United States to play for Indiana Invaders in the USL Premier Development League and scored his team's first goal of the 2010 season in the 2–1 victory over the Cincinnati Kings. Griffiths said that, on the back of signing a raft of experienced players last week, the vitality of youth very much comes to the fore by signing a player of undoubted quality in Daryl Robson.
Griffiths said: “Daryl is 22 years old and a midfield player of significance to operate in our engine room. “The blend of youth and experience will serve us well, no question of that, but the bottom line is for us to acquire a squad that is packed with quality.
“The hard work is being put in behind the scenes to ensure that after a busy pre-season schedule - the first match away to Barkingside on 13th July - we are ready to hit the ground running.”
