'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Chairman - Millers are a club with a future

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart says that players are signing up for the Millers because they know that they are signing for a 'club with a future.'

Speaking to Les Payne of The Star, Mr Stewart said, 'The people coming here are looking at the football club and genuinely believe we'll be going places.

'They look at the last two years. Last season we got to Wembley in the Play-Off Finals and the season before, but for points deducted, we would have been in the play-offs.

'The people coming to join Rotherham United are looking at the history and they want to make sure their CV's are good. And they can see we are moving forward. The Manager is now bringing in his own team of people and recruiting as he sees fit. This leaves me and the board to think we have a good chance of an automatic promotion place this time.'

Since taking over the club in 2008, Mr Stewart says that he's learnt a lot.

'I've learnt to understand the mentality of the game, the surprises, the shocks and the enjoyment. But, what's not changed is the drive, the push and the determination.'

The Millers take on Leicester City this evening at Don Valley (7.45pm kick off) and it's likely that all seven new players will play some part in the game.

Tickets for this game are on sale at Mangham House and are priced at 10 for Adults and 5 for concessions.
You can also pay on the gate this evening.
