New Stadium..

Rotherham are in talks over moving to a purpose-built 15,000 all-seater stadium, which they will share with the towns rugby team-the titans

Talks have reportedly been held between the Millers board, Rotherham Titans chief executive Mike Cuff and local council leader Roger Stone.

Millers chairman Dennis Coleman told the Rotherham Advertiser: 'Very positive and meaningful and exiting progress was being made.

'Rotherham has desperately needed a new stadium for years and now there is at last a glimmer of hope on the horizon. There has been a lot of false dawns over the years but now the people that matter are really lucking into this idea.

'I must stress that this wouldnt just be a sports stadium but a community stadium, complete with retail and perhaps hotel facilities, It would form a real asset for this town.'

Redevelopment work on a new stand at Millmoor will be put on hold, while council officials consider the proposal.

Coleman added: 'There is a lot of negotiating to be done but my aim is to have the new stadium built in two to three seasons time.'

We have heard and reported this story so many times let's hope this time it actually happens.

Serious question - can you afford to stop work on the new stand. I thought that you would need that to be up & running ASAP to generate money.

Just what you need a new ground to start getting bck on your feet. As a swindon fan I know how frustrating it can be with regards to getting a new ground.

Its great to talk about it, but if its a go-er, then i hope it gets off the ground and starts to move apace.
