443 Jason Taylor
Position : Midfield
Played : 2009-10 ( on loan from Rotherham )
Appearances : 23
Goals : 1
Jason also made his debut away at Dagenham. He began as a trainee at Oldham but made his League debut on loan at Stockport in 2006 . After 9 games they made the move permanent . He played 96 games for County scoring 6 goals. Keith Hill tried to sign him in January 2009 when his contract expired but Rotherham made him a better offer. However Hill kept an eye on his fortunes and as soon as Jason lost his first team place brought him in on a season-long loan.
Jason was the last major piece of the promotion jigsaw to fall into place. His midfield partnership with Jason Kennedy made us near- unbeatable for three months and we could afford to drop points thereafter. The crop-headed bruiser stood in front of the back four , broke up attacks then played a simple pass to someone more creative. He did sometimes come forward but never tried anything fancy just did a solid job week after week. The only blot was a red card for fighting at Accrington.
There didn't seem much prospect of signing him in the close season and indeed he played in nearly every game for Rotherham in 2010-11
