RUFC - Chairman has sympathy for 'brick' people

RUFC - Chairman has sympathy for 'brick' people

Rotherham United fans who paid into the 'buy-a-brick' scheme under the Millers05 regime, have not been forgotten.

Fans paid out around £170,000 to have names and messages put on specially made bricks, the money going to help build a new stand at Millmoor - which never got finished.

Time and time again the 'what happened to our bricks' question has been asked to the various owners of the club and, at a forum in 2008, Rotherham United Supporters' Trust Chairman, Mark Thomas said that there was a database with the names of supporters who contributed to the scheme when it was launched.

The Buy-a- Brick offer began towards the end of 2005, with former Chairman of RUST, Craig Saunderson, saying, 'By buying a brick in the main stand, you and/or your loved ones will not only have something to treasure for a long time but are guaranteed to be part of Millmoor forever.'

Well, as we all now know, it didn't quite work out like that.

With all the excitment of the talk of the new stadium, the bricks have been mentioned again and Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart, told The Advertiser this week, that he has every sympathy for the fans who paid out good money for a brick.

'We are considering doing something,' Mr Stewart said, 'but, at the moment, we don't know whether the stadium fabric is going to be brick, stone, concrete or whatever.

'Once this is decided we can give the matter fuller consideration.'

So, those of you who bought bricks, and I was one of them, if, for some reason brick can't be used what would you like instead?

I'm just pleased this hasn't been brushed under the carpet - because, those bricks are part of the history of Rotherham United and we need to see something done.
