Community and relationships… making the world go around or at the very least Manchester!

Steve Harrison (DDG) & Rudi Kidd (Grand Central)

It was great to see these pair putting the world to rights, over a fabulous Italian meal and a glass of red this month.

Steve and Rudi go back many years, working in the music industry and now the sports industry.

Both were great friends of the late Tony Wilson of Factory Records, Granada TV and Hacienda nightclub fame, and were all key players in the fomer ‘In The City’ music conference in Manchester.

Long standing friends with a great deal of mutual respect and invaluable experience across the sectors of football, music, tv, media and film.

They even across the great divide, with Steve a lifelong Blue and Rudi a Red!

JJ continues along the positive upward trajectory with both club and international appearances

Joshua Kayode…

DDG is buzzing to witness the continued progress of JJ Kayode with 1st team appearances with Rotherham United, together with international call-ups and critical game time with the Republic of Ireland U21’s.

A new three-year contract with Millers earlier this year helped push back interest from a number of would be suitors across the Premier League and Championship as well as Europe.

For now… he gets his head down and continues to work hard and improve his game.

Comittment and ability never ever in doubt.

DDG secures a loan deal for Jake Cooper from Rotherham United to Conference side Darlington

Twenty year-old Centre-Back Jake Cooper

We were thrilled to deliver a deal taking Jake Cooper to Darlington FC in the Conference, which guarantee’s him game time, and crucial development for this highly-rated 6’4″ Centre-Back from Sheffield.

Jake has already played on previous loan deals at Gateshead and Hartlepool, and was the subject of much speculation with a move to a rival EFL club in the summer window.

Coops has already made a number of appearances for the senior Rotherham United side…

Enjoy it all Jake!
