Playing career

Sheffield United

A member of Sheffield United's academy, Law was given a squad number despite only being expected to play in the reserves and Under-18's. However, he made his first team debut as a 58th minute substitute for Colin Marrison in the League Cup against Reading on 25 October 2005.[1]

Law made his Premier League debut for the Blades as a 90th minute substitute against Newcastle United on 4 November 2006.[2] and made his home league debut as week later, as a substitute against Bolton Wanderers at Bramall Lane the following week.[3] He made four Premier League appearances during the 2006–07 season.[4]

In February 2006, Law joined Yeovil Town on a month's loan, later extended to two months[5] playing six times whilst at Huish Park.[6]

Law had to wait until his third senior season to score his first goal for the Blades coming in a second round Carling Cup tie at MK Dons in 28 August 2007.[7] He subsequently signed on loan for Bradford City on 5 October after being recommended to the club by his father and former City manager Nicky Law.[8] He scored his first career league goals when he scored twice in the final minutes of Bradford's 4–1 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge on 17 November 2007.[9] He returned to Sheffield United after two months opting to fight for a first team place in the Championship.[10]

In October 2008, Law was again signed on loan at Bradford City, as cover for Joe Colbeck, who was injured in a victory against Grimsby Town.[11] His first game during his second spell was a day later and ended in a 1–0 victory against Bury at Valley Parade, with Law nearly scoring in the first half.[12] He scored the first goal of his second spell in his fifth game to give City a 2–0 victory against Rotherham United at the Don Valley Stadium on 22 November.[13] With City suffering a number of injuries to midfielders, Law's loan deal was extended until the New Year and another time until the end of the season.[14][15]

Law returned to Bramall Lane at the end of the season having made 29 appearances for the Bantams but was placed on the transfer list as Sheffield United sought to trim their squad.[16]

Rotherham United

In June 2009, despite interest from both League One and League Two clubs, Law signed a two-year deal with Rotherham United. He left Bramall Lane on a free transfer but with the Blades retaining a 50% sell on clause.[17] Law went immediately into Rotherham's first team after impressing in pre-season, making a huge impact to the squad and endearing himself with the fans. Consistent outstanding performances throughout the first month of the season brought much praise and attention to the young midfielder. Sky Sports pundits commented that he could "easily play in the championship, if not higher." On the strength of this, Middlesbrough reportedly placed a late deadline day bid, but this was rejected by Rotherham. After topping the list of assists in League Two consistently since the start of the season, Law scored his first goal for Rotherham on 26 September against Barnet. By January, Rotherham turned down another bid for Law, this time a £150,000 offer from Championship side Blackpool.[18]
