RUFC - A look back at the last day of the season

So, now the dust has more or less settled on League Football for another season - let's have a quick look at what happened at the weekend regarding League Two

Chesterfield were finally crowned champions of the league on Saturday after beating Gillingham at the B2Net on Saturday and will start next season in League One. Bury, the only team in with a chance of getting above Chesterfield, could only draw with Southend so had to be content with being runners-up. Wycombe made up the trio of clubs going up automatic while Shrewsbury, Accrington Stanley (who hadn't lost any of their last thirteen games), Stevenage (who were promoted as Conference champions last season) and Torquay are now heading for the play-offs.

The Millers, in ninth place finished two points outside the play-offs after starting the season so well. Oxford, who returned to League Two this season from the Conference, did very well and ended up in twelfth place

At the other end of the table, Stockport County are going into the Conference along with Lincoln City who lost to Aldershot at home.

The Millers will be playing Dagenham and Redbridge who beat them in the play-off final last year, as they are coming straight back down. Also down are Bristol Rovers, Plymouth Argyle (not helped by having ten points deducted in February) and Swindon Town.


Coming up from the Blue Square Bet Premier League are Crawley Town who won the league with one hundred and five points, fifteen more than the club nearest to them, Wimbledon. Luton beat Wrexham last night, which was 5-1 on aggregate to go into the Play-Off Final while Wimbledon take a two goal lead into the second leg of their play-off with Fleetwood tonight.

So, it looks like the Millers have a fair bit of travelling to do next season and, for me at least, there will be a fair number of 'new' grounds to visit. What about you? Come and tell us here on Vital Rotherham of the grounds you will make an effort to go to next season. Click the link below and do what it says!
