RUFC - Extra Time Project

Rotherham United are one of twelve clubs to be involved in the new Extra Time Project that is designed to encourage keeping retired fans fit.

The other teams involved in this project with the Millers are - Bradford, Charlton, Colchester, Huddersfield, Norwich, Nottingham Forest, Plymouth, Rochdale, Scunthorpe, Swindon and Watford.

Extra Timers can use club facilities and local leisure centres to keep healthy free of charge - for instance, Rochdale are offering curling, volley ball, badminton, swimming and tai chi while Watford are also going to give the Extra Timers chance to take technology courses along with playing board games and carpet bowls.

Football League Trust Regional Manager, Dean Grice, told the Football League Official Site, 'It's very encouraging to see that Extra Time has been so well received. With Club Community departments supporting the youngsters across the country it's great to see that the older generation are now being catered for.'
