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

RUFC - 'Fans been marvellous'

Rotherham United's new Commercial Manager, Terry Stewart said that the fans had been marvellous - not only because of all the season tickets sold but for the help they have been while the club has been moving from Millmoor to Barbot Hall.

Mr Stewart said that one of the Boxes at Don Valley had been sold and that the Commercial Department had been expanded.

The Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas was asked about having a ticket office in the town centre and he explained that the club were going to try an experiment and would be selling tickets in the next week or so at the Tourist Information Centre in town.

'We thought we were staying at Millmoor and it was a surprise when talks broke down. It left us little time to find anywhere which is why we moved everything to Barbot Hall. But we are going to see how it works out at the Tourist Information Centre. We hope they might sell some of our merchandise as well.'

Mr Douglas was asked about the possibility of bussing people from Rotherham to Don Valley and he said that the club had been in talks with First Mainline. 'We've met with them and are waiting for another meeting with them. The Police are happy with the safety issue in Sheffield with the busses dropping fans off and either staying or coming back at the end of the game. I hope to get it working. I know that First Mainline has worked well with the Supporters Club in the past.'

The last question to Mr Douglas was about the 'infamous' bricks and what had happened to the money people paid for them.

'The brick money was always intended for the new stand. And, the money did go into that. We will be discussing this issue with Millers Trust when we get our new ground. I want to tell all those people who bought bricks that they won't be forgotten.'
