What was happening on this day in years gone by?

25th April 2009

On this day, last year, the Millers travelled the short journey to West Yorkshire to take on Bradford City. Unfortunately, it wasn`t a good day with the Millers being on the wrong side of a three-nil score line. Peter Thorn scored two goals in the first half and Steve Jones got a third seventeen minutes from time. After the game, then Manager, Mark Robins praised goalkeeper, Andy Warrington and said, but for him, it could have been much worse.

It was on this day that Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas, told the local radio station that 'perks` by the Booth Family were frightening off prospective buyers of the club.

Meanwhile, Mark Robins was urging his team to go to Mansfield and get their third win in a row. He was going into this game without Stephen Brogan and Ian Sharps, who was recovering from a hernia operation.

Before the game Robins was asked if any club had asked about any of the players, and he said, 'I've not had any contact about any of the players - I've just put a side together and I don't want to have to start dismantling. Credit to everyone. We've stuck together and we want to finish the season on a high note.'

25th April 2007

On this day three years ago, a Marc Newsham goal gave the Reserves a draw at the Keepmoat with Doncaster Reserves.

Martin Woods was in talks with the Millers.

Club Officials made a request for fans to stay off the pitch at the final home game at Millmoor against Cheltenham on the following Saturday.

Pre-season games were announced against Altrincham, Stocksbridge, Burton Albion, Barnsley and Hartlepool.

The last win on April 25th was twenty years ago with a 3-1 victory over Newport at Millmoor. A comfortable win against relegated Newport was sealed by goals from Gareth Evans 2 and Andy Williams with Paul Compton replying for County.

25th April 1981

On this day, a point would have been enough to give Rotherham United the Third Division Championship, but Brentford had other ideas at Griffin Park and the champagne was put back on ice till the following week as goals from Bob Booker and Terry Hurlock beat the Millers 2-1. Ronnie Moore netted his twenty-fourth goal of the season as The Millers slumped to their first defeat in eight games.

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!

It was a scrappy start to the game and although Rovers
