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

RUFC - The Chairman 'happy to be in charge'

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart, was one of the guests at this evenings Open Forum. Before he took questions from the Millers fans there, he outlined his part in the club so far.

It's been a roller coaster ride since I got involved at the end of April. I looked at the club and I felt there were lots to be done. And a lot of what had, and still has to be done, is on the commercial side - things like hospitality and advertising had to be sorted quickly. I don't know much about football, but I do realise that if the team play well then they are supported well.

The next step was to put a business plan together and I actually thought that was plain sailing. Then May came and I had to get involved with the administration and the league. I actually feel that four months was wasted and felt it could all have been done in a couple of weeks. We didn't get our Football League share back until the day before the Lincoln game. You know, I feel the minus seventeen points was unfair on me - the Luton, Bournemouth and Leeds boards that took them into administration were more or less the same ones that were given the minus points. I didn't take Rotherham United into administration.


Mr Stewart then went on to thank the fans for sticking by the club in the move to Don Valley and he said he was happy to be in charge of the club and be working with the people who are there.
