RUFC - Stewart 'site ticks all boxes'

RUFC - Stewart 'site ticks all boxes'

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart has finally settled on a site for the new ground ...

yawn, stretch, sigh - sorry, stop me if you've heard this one before.....

Of course, Mr Stewart can't tell us where the site is because there are 'delicate negotiations' going on.

Hmmmm

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Mr Stewart said that this new site, that he is excited about, is in a comfortable location for Rotherham United, ticks all the boxes and it suits the Borough Council.

'Things are looking good,' Mr Stewart said, 'but there are still issues to work through.'

Now, we've definitely heard that one before.

David Beddows says he understands that places such as the B&Q, Tinsley, and Canklow, that rumours have suggested as possible sites for our new ground, are all out of the equation.

Mrs Stewart says, 'We've looked at more than twenty-five sites around the borough but this one emerged six to eight weeks ago and we feel it's the best available.'

The new site that the club has found is owned privatly and environmental tests are now being done to ensure the site is suitable on which to build a 12-15,000 all seater stadium.

So, where do WE think the new stadium will be? With the three stated above as being no-goers and Millmoor out of the question, where else is there?

The site where Guest and Chrimes now stands? It's in the town centre, easyish to get to but I understand there might be an issue of a listed building on the land.

Where the bus depot is, around Union Street? Once again near the town centre but is it big enough?

Somewhere at Hellaby? Easy Motorway access and probably as good a choice as any.

Or has anyone else any other suggestions?

Mr Stewart hopes to 'be in a position to make an announcement soon.'

South Yorkshire Bragging Rights Go To The Millers

Rotherham United's fighting spirit did them well this afternoon after they came from one down in the first half to win the South Yorkshire derby with Doncaster Rovers two-one - but boy, did they leave it late!

Joe Mattock was back in the starting line-up for the Millers with Michael Ihiekwe, who had replaced him last week, nowhere to be seen. Rovers also made one change with Ben Whiteman replacing the injured Luke McCullough.

It was a scrappy start to the game and although Rovers
