Rotherham United’s summer signing spree has continued with the arrival of a League One title winner at the New York Stadium on Friday.

Sean Raggett, a 31 year-old centre-back who made 44 appearances in all competitions for Portsmouth as they won League One last season, became the fifth signing for former Peterborough United boss Steve Evans when agreeing a two-year contract yesterday.

He joins striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, left-back Reece James, midfielder Shaun McWilliams and right-back Joe Rafferty as Millers newcomers. Rafferty was also part of Pompey’s successful squad last season, while Clarke-Harris (Posh) and James (Sheffield Wednesday) have also won recent promotions from League One.

Evans still has some way to go to match the number of signings he made for Posh in his only summer at the club. He made 18 in pre-season and added another five in January, although he was sacked before the end of that month with Posh in a play-off place.

Elsewhere in League One Stevenage, who have confirmed Alex Revell is Steve Evans’ replacement as their manager, have signed forward Louis Appere who was out of contract at Northampton Town.

Newly-promoted Stockport County have made midfielder/defender Jay Mingi their first summer signing for an undisclosed fee from Colchester United.
