RUFC - 'No Hiccups' says Chairman

RUFC - 'No Hiccups' says Chairman

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart is optimistic that the new stadium, on the old Guest and Chrimes Foundry site, will be ready as planned for the start of the 2012/13 season.

The design of the new stadium will be bowl shaped and is set to have a 12,000 all-seater capacity.

Although there have been the usual obstacles that you associate with a new build of this size Mr Stewart told David Beddows of The Advertiser that there have been 'no hiccups`.

'Nothing has changed.` Mr Stewart said, 'The chart saying where we need to be has not been altered since day one. We are hitting targets and are reasonably comfortable that we can deliver this stadium in the timescale set and a lot of things will happen in the run up to Christmas.`

The club obtained the former Gloystarne distribution site next door and have demolished the warehouse there and Mr. Stewart says that work on the actual stadium will start early next year saying that they need to start digging by February.

Mr. Stewart is still in talks with English Heritage about the old Guest and Chrimes building that is still on the site as it is a Listed building and special permission is needed to demolish it.

'We are hoping that in the next two or three weeks we can get outline planning consent and then we will be able to say who the main contractors are. By November I hope we can start showing the site plans and visuals of the stadium itself.

'I am still having regular meetings with the council and the architects and everything is going to plan.`
