RUFC - Chairman has his say on the Torquay debacle

RUFC - Chairman has his say on the Torquay debacle

Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart said he was 'very annoyed` at the late postponement of the Torquay game last Saturday.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Mr Stewart said, 'To have a pitch inspection when fans had been on the road for three or four hours wasn`t good enough and we`ve put a complaint into the league and are waiting to hear that result. We are hoping that we can claim for expenses incurred for the team.

'Given the extreme conditions that we`ve experienced over the last few weeks and especially with long distance travel, then the club who are hosting the game have to use some common sense. We were in a similar situation a few weeks ago and we contacted the league and asked for a pitch inspection on Thursday instead of Friday, which we did, and called that game off. That gave the opponents time to re-address the situation and they notified their fans and officials to stop them setting off.

'So, I think a bit of common sense, a bit of co-operation and a bit of thought wouldn`t go amiss in any condition.

'Last season we missed far too many matches around this period and now we`ve got ground covers which are good to -4 degrees of frost so we are more prepared this time round. As regards the game with Accrington Stanley on Tuesday we are in the lap of the gods. We are hoping that milder weather is coming but we are geared up to do what we can to get that match on for Tuesday.`
