RUFC - A look back through the archives.....

What happened in the past on 2nd May?

2nd May 2009

It was on this day last year that Exeter City went up automatically thanks to a 1-0 at Don Valley. It was quite a game with a penalty, a penalty save and a sending off in front of over six thousand fans. Richard Logan scored the only goal in the second half followed by Dale Tonge getting his marching orders for being the last man and bringing down Craig McAllister in the penalty area. Stuart Fleetwood took the resulting spot kick but Andy Warrington, who was man of the match, pulled of a great save. At the end of the game both sets of fans were on the pitch together, along with the players, handing out congratulations to Exeter.

After the game, RUSC held their annual awards evening with Reuben Reid collecting The Derek Dalton Trophy and Top Scorer Trophy. Ian Sharps was awarded with The Player of the Year, The Away Player of the Year as well as The Player of the Year from the Swinton Branch of the Supporters Club while Jamie Green was awarded the Young Player of the Year.

Vital Rotherham were invited (or we muscled our way in, which ever you think!) to present their awards. The Player of the Year was presented to Andy Warrington and Jamie Green was awarded the Mitch Cassell Trophy.

2nd May 2007

On this day three years ago, it was expected that Mark Robins would be naming John Breckin as his second in command.

Bristol City reduced our ticket allocation from six hundred to four hundred for the final match of the 2006/7 season. This was thought to be because of the expected Bristol City promotion party.

2nd May 2006

Four years ago today, Manager, Alan Knill, signed a new one year contract. Chairman, Dennis Coleman said, ''We've been impressed with the way Alan has gone about the job and we want to show our commitment to him. Making the offer now takes the uncertainty away and enables him to start building for the future.'

It was announced that the last game of the season, at Millmoor, against MK Dons would be a sell-out.
