FORMER Darlington midfielder Micky Cummins has joined League Two rivals Rotherham United.

The 29-year-old was only released by Quakers yesterday and the Millers have moved quickly to secure his signature.

He has signed a two-year contract for Mark Robins' side, against whom he scored in a 1-1 draw at the Darlington Arena in December.

The former Middlesbrough youth team player joined Quakers two years ago, making almst 100 appearances and scoring ten goals.

His final strike for the club was the second goal in Darlington's 2-0 win at Peterborough on the final day of the season when he played, and impressed, as a makeshift striker.
