RUFC - Statement by Directors

Rotherham United directors, Dave Costin, Giles Brearley and Gary Hall have put out a statement via The Advertiser as they continue to fight to try and save the club.

'Denis Coleman has recently received unjust criticism regarding the club, which is a sad state of affairs considering the tireless efforts and sacrifices he has made and is still making. If it had not been for Denis's efforts two years ago there would not have been a club thereafter.

'If only the critics had responded to our earlier requests for assistance as quickly as they condemn someone then things may be different. All of the directors are united in their efforts - Denis is not alone and as a group we are most steadfast.

'For two years the directors have worked tirelessly, not only for no financial gains, but also at a cost by paying for things themselves on behalf of the club to assist it.

'From the start Denis told everyone that his role was that of custodian and the search for investors has gone on for some time. The frustrating thing about all this is the number of proposed investors who publicly say they are keen to progress and then do not send for an investors' pack, enter into meaningful discussions or make promises that aren't kept. This does untold damage.

'The fans need to seriously rally round and give support to the club in the next few weeks. Many Administrators would not have taken the Rotherham job on and support for Jeremy Bleazard throughout is essential. The cash flow, through administration, is very tight.

'Mark Thomas and his fellow Trust members are doing a fantastic job in assisting with this and trying to rally the cause, but they can't do it alone. If fans do walk away the administration cashflow looks threatened and administration could well be brought to an abrupt end.

'Any parties interested in acquiring the club need to make contact with Jeremy Bleazard or Paul Douglas at Millmoor.

'The former directors have not retreated into the background. We are all here, united, to assist in any way we can.'
