RUFC - Chairman thanks fans

RUFC - Chairman thanks fans

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart wants to thank the fans for their vocal support during the two-nil win over Dagenham and Redbridge at Don Valley last night.

Speaking to the Official Site, Mr Stewart said, 'I would like to go on record with my sincere thanks to the fans for their vocal support last night.

'We know it has been frustrating of late and last night I thought, together, we all pulled rank and stood firm and that a positive message was transferred to the pitch.'

Speaking about the stadium, that the Millers have called 'home' for the last two years, Mr Stewart said, 'The acoustics at Don Valley does make it that little bit more difficult to generate the type of atmosphere we'd ideally enjoy at home games but, as last night proved, it is not impossible.

'I'm told that on the pitch you can just about hear everything so when we - and I include myself in that - vent our frustrations this transfers onto the pitch. But, when we collectively show our encouragement this does too and I think last night proved that.

'We appreciate that Don Valley isn't always the perfect arena for us to play our football in, but it was always going to be a temporary measure and the work on our new home is gathering pace day after day.

'For the short time before we move into our new stadium it is important for us to stick together and get behind the team like we did last night.'

The atmosphere at Don Valley is bad enough without the intervention of its atrocious stewards. The petty way they insist on everyone sitting down kills the footballing experience as no-one then sings, home or away. For everyone at Rotherhams sake I genuinely hope you don't take that bunch of clowns with you when you move to your own Stadium. They are the worst in the Football League and I hope they are proud of themselves that they have ruined any chance of having an atmosphere at Don Valley.

You obviously had a bad time at DV, lemmy. It's a soulless place as you say no atmosphere. But, I had a bad time with our stewards when we were at Millmoor so they are probably one and the same

Yes it was a bad experience herringthorpe. From what I heard the Chesterfield fans had an even worse time. They were threatened with police batons unless they sat down! The problem appears to be the jobsworth in charge. He brandishes a card stating that he's a "qualified doorman". Obviously he isn't into football and doesn't appreciate why the fans need to sing their support. Agreed it may be the same idiot who tried to trash the noise at Millmoor. If youy have any clout at the club I suggest you make the directors aware and get him sacked before he imparts himself on your new ground. Cheers

Regarding the police baton, we can't tell the police how to do their job. I agree about over-zealous stewarding though, what's the point going to away games if you can't support the team.
