Died aged 86, played half back in the first Rotherham team I truly remember in the late 50s/early 60s, skilful, reliable, consistent player. Think he took over from the great Danny Williams.

Remember Ken well, a good player. I used to collect autographs as a lad & always remember his signature which was very small and precise, spelling out clearly each letter of his.

I remember Ken Waterhouse playing for the Millers, a good half back in his day.

Sincere condolences to his family, R.I.P. Ken.

Remember him signing from PNE with a fat lad called Foster who played one game and never again. Ken was a fine player and a nice bloke. He came along to our school with Danny Williams for a while to do a bit of coaching.

He was highly rated by many older Millers fans - slightly too young myself to have seen him play

A game, or two games, I remember well. At least we were the first team ever to score in a League Cup Final.

Too young to recall him at all….

On the radio tonight heard a Millers fan highly praise Ken and he was recalling what a great player he was….

R.I.P Ken….
