Gadd extends his stay with the Titans

Rotherham Titans are delighted to announce that loose head prop Marshall Gadd has committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension; which will see him remain at Clifton Lane until 2014.

The former Moseley-man arrived at Rotherham during the summer and his impressive performances have elevated him into a regular starter in the Titans pack.

The 28 year-old Stoke-on-Trent native has started the last four Championship games for the South Yorkshire outfit and that has enabled Gadd to demonstrate his talents and earn an extended stay with the club.

Commenting on the news Marshall explained, “I’m delighted to have signed my contract to stay at Clifton Lane for next season. One of the biggest reasons for doing so is our coach Alex Codling; but also because I am very happy here at Rotherham. I’ve settled into the area well, I live local, the supporters here are fantastic, the people in and around the club are fantastic and I feel very much at home here.

“At this moment in time I’m happier playing my rugby than I’ve been for a very long time and that’s down to the people here and the support I am getting. There’s lots of competition for places and that’s a good thing as it ensures you keep an edge about your game. Without that competition for places there’s always a danger that complacency can creep into the squad.”

Titans Head Coach Alex Codling is equally pleased that Gadd has agreed to stay, as he stated, “I’m absolutely delighted that Marshall has agreed to stay at Rotherham, he’s made huge progress this season and I’m thrilled he’s made the commitment to the club and I’m looking forward to him progressing further next term.

“Marshall is a great guy with a fantastic attitude and like all players there are still things to work on, but the potential is there and that’s important. He’s made massive strides this year and he’s been a massive part of the pack. Hopefully he will go on to be a real cornerstone of our pack going forward.”
