'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC Out of Administration

Rotherham United are out of administration and have a new owner and Chairman as Tony Stewart has at last signed on the dotted line.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Mr Stewart said, 'The completion was a formality and now we've got to get our heads down and get on with it. It should have all been done last week but that wasn't possible. The solicitors have been down this week and we've signed on the dotted line.

'The next step is to sort out the CVA.'

When the CVA is sorted it will then enable the club to get back their Football League share. This should happen within the next five weeks and if all goes to plan then the Millers won't be hit with minus points at the start of the forthcoming season.

'We have to make sure that what we are doing is in keeping with what the Football League and the FA requirements,' Mr Stewart carried on, 'and we need to make sure we have a nice transition coming out of this administration.

'We need people to know that we are going in as a professional body with a view to the long term and NOT just keeping Rotherham United afloat. We need to let them know that we are ambitious and putting in the right people to do a job for us.

'Our product at Rotherham United is football and if the product is not good then it won't sell. We have to put the energy into it - we all want the same thing at the club. We want a team that's going to reach the Championship and that is possible, just look at Hull City. But we need to look at the long term.

'This is not just about throwing money at it, it's about having a job to do and if we are going to play football then we are going to play bloody well.'

Vital Rotherham want to welcome Tony Stewart as the new owner of Rotherham United and I would like to ask him to do just one thing - please, keep us, the supporters, up to date with what's happening with the club. I feel we've been kept in the dark far too long.

Ohh! People do read to the bottom of my articles then!!! LOL I do feel if we are having a 'new beginning' it's about time the club started to give the fans a bit back. We've been through a lot in recent years - and, moving to Sheffield, is just another bruise to add. If the new owner wants to build the fan base up then he has to start and tell us things - even if it's bad. We've had things pushed under the carpet for far too long and, in my opinion, things have to out in the open now.

Good to see you are out of administration. The priority now must be to get the CVA sorted.

Thank you dazza and JK - yes that's the next thing on the list. I'm not sure how long you have to sort the CVA out but it must be before the start of the season I guess?
