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

RUFC - A look back in the archives

Not a lot seems to have happened on this day in the past - so here are just a few recent memories starting with ...

30 May 2010

Well this time last year over fifteen thousand of us were setting off for Wembley in the hopes of seeing the Millers promoted. As we know, it didn't quite work out and we came away with sad faces and despite twice coming from behind Dagenham and Redbridge beat us three-two. (Of course, we will be meeting the Daggers again this season as they have come straight back down - would we have done better?).

After the match, Nick Fenton said that 'it was disappointing to lose at Wembley but it must have been exciting to watch.'
Pablo Mills was 'heartbroken' and 'gutted.'
A tearful Andy Warrington said 'This is the worst moment I've ever had in football.'
Double goal scorer, Ryan Taylor was 'gutted.'
Manager, Ronnie Moore said that it was 'soul destroying.'

30 May 2009

On this day, two years ago, defender Jamie Green penned a new two year deal and said that he wanted 'promotion.'

30 May 2008

The news that we were moving away from Millmoor was raw amongst Millers fans and there were different rumours going around. For instance - South Yorkshire Police were thinking about asking the Millers to play on a Friday night or on a Sunday so as not to clash with either of the Sheffield clubs' Saturday fixtures.

Paul Douglas went on record as saying that he 'hoped the fans would back the move' while Chairman, Tony Stewart, said he was 'disappointed that he couldn't secure Millmoor so the club could stop there.' Local landlords and shop owners were also upset that the club were moving away.

Also, on this day, we discovered that we were to have an International in the side in Marc Joseph! Mr Joseph Senior, Sam, heard that Antigua were on the look out for players and as quick as you like got in touch with them with Marc's details. Antigua officials came to see Marc a couple of times and wanted him in the side!

This week both Micky Cummings and Mark Lynch joined the Millers and there were rumours going round that Matty Hamshaw was going to join from Mansfield Town.

30 May 2007

This time four years ago Eugen Bopp left the Millers for Crewe. Bopp made twenty-nine appearances for Rotherham after joining from Nottingham Forest but injury took away quite a bit of his season.

Meanwhile, Manager, Mark Robins, who had already brought in Andy Todd and Danny Harrison, was hoping to bring in more players with his aim being to get experience in.
