1996 Auto Windscreens Shield final: How the Rotherham players rated

Rotherham are 1995-96 Auto Windscreens Shield champions after a 2-1 success on the club's first ever visit to Wembley.

A brace from Nigel Jemson led the Millers to glory, but it was a team effort that got the men in red and white over the line.

Here is how the players rated on a glorious day at the national stadium.

Matt Clarke 7 - Clarke will go down in history as the man who lifted the trophy for the Millers and in truth, that's the most work he had to do. Was barely tested by the Shrews but stood up well when balls were being thrown into the box.

Paul Blades 6 - The right-back tried to join in attack, but his biggest involvement was a crucial interception in the frantic final 10 minutes.

Neil Richardson 7 - Richardson was solid throughout and stood up to the challenge of Shrewsbury's late onslaught as they looked for a way back into the game.

Ian Breckin 8 - Continued to enhance his growing reputation with an imposing display. Coped especially well with the introduction of Steve Anthrobus at half-time.

Paul Hurst 7 - Was a solid presence on the left and was energetic in getting up and down to join in attack.

Trevor Berry 7 - A constant threat with his pace and trickery on the right, but his final ball often let him down.

Shaun Goodwin 7 - Looked classy on the big stage and his bombing forward runs from midfield made him dangerous.

Darren Garner 7 - The midfielder provided vital protection for the back four and controlled the middle of the park.

Andy Roscoe 7 - Let no one down, but similarly to Berry, Roscoe found himself in some good positions on the left only to waste his delivery.

Nigel Jemson 10 - The star of the show, Jemson played himself into Millers folklore with his two goals that earned glory and he was inches away from a Wembley hat-trick.

Shaun Goater 9 - Another impressive performance from the Bermudan who is forging a fine partnership with Jemson. Close to scoring in the first half, it was his fine play that set up the opener.
