Emmanuel and Rotherham Off to Wembley
Wednesday, 16th May 2018 22:17
Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel and his loan club Rotherham beat Scunthorpe 2-0 in the second leg of their play-off semi-final at the New York Stadium and 4-2 on aggregate to reach the final at Wembley.
Emmanuel played the full 90 minutes and created the Millers’ second goal - as he had done in the first leg - and was named the sponsors’ man of the match.
The Millers will face Town management contender Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury at Wembley on Sunday 27th May.
Emmanuel has spent the season with Rotherham, making 36 starts and one sub appearances without scoring.
The 20-year-old academy product, who is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2019 with the club having an option for a further season, recently picked up Rotherham’s Young Player of the Year award.

I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
