THREE former Rotherham United players could be set to play on one of the world’s biggest footballing stages next season.
Laurence Wilson (30) and Gary Roberts (30) helped Welsh outfit Bangor City into the qualifying stages of the Europa League – the second biggest club tournament in Europe after the Champions League – thanks to a 1-0 win over Cardiff Met FC on Saturday.

Thirty-four-year-old Daniel Nardiello didn’t play in the game at the weekend but is registered as a Bangor player.
Defender Wilson, who made seven appearances for the Millers in 2012, and midfielder Roberts, who scored three times in 13 games in the 2009/10 season, both started the play-off tie.
Striker Dean Rittenberg's first half strike was enough for former Premier League man Gary Taylor-Fletcher’s side to reach the qualification rounds for next season’s tournament.
