Warne still going strong

19 July 2010 04:00
Rotherham veteran Paul Warne insists there is still life in his legs as he approaches his 14th season as a professional. The 37-year-old midfielder was handed a one-year player-coach role in the summer and he is keen to prove he can still cut it in the fitness stakes after being put through a gruelling pre-season routine. "My overall fitness is impressive," he told the club's official website. "I have done well with the 400m runs but the power and acceleration is not quite what it once was. "Obviously the older I get the slower I get, but I never really had pace to lose. "I have never been quick, just very dogged so hopefully I will play some part this year and I am looking forward to it." Warne will be hoping to be involved when the Millers make their first public outing of the pre-season campaign against Leicester on Tuesday.
