RUFC - Millers to cover a lot of miles next season

Rotherham United now know the teams they will be visiting and who will be coming to Don Valley next season.

With Stevenage beating Torquay in the play-off Final at Old Trafford this weekend, the Millers face another long trek to Plainmoor, although we have one further than that, in Plymouth Argyle, to travel too (here's hoping they aren't a) in the winter months and b) on a Tuesday night!

The full list of League Two sides next season are

Accrington
AFC Wimbledon
Aldershot
Barnet
Bradford City
Bristol Rovers
Burton Albion
Cheltenham
Crawley Town
Crewe Alexandra
Dagenham and Redbridge
Gillingham
Hereford United
Macclesfield Town
Morecambe
Northampton
Oxford United
Port Vale
Plymouth Argyle
Shrewsbury Town
Southend United
Swindon Town
Torquay United

Our stats man, Zipadeedoodah has had his abacus out and his shoes and socks off and worked out that, to travel to every away game next season, Millers fans will be travelling 6,577.8 miles - which is 1,463.6 miles more than last year. Wow! And, of course, that's just league games, there's the League Cup, the FA Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy games to add onto that (maybe we should be hoping they will all be at Don Valley!) Then, at the end of the season there could well be a trek to Wembley . well, you never know!

There will be a couple of new grounds for me to visit next season - Kingsmeadow (AFC Wimbledon), Memorial Stadium (Bristol Rovers), Broadfield Stadium (Crawley Town) and Home Park (Plymouth).

The fixtures come out at 9am on 17th June and we will then start to make the arrangements for all these trips - and I'm sure there will be some moaning and groaning involved (if only from me!)

But, if the Millers are doing as well as we are expecting them to do then, I am sure, there will be a good following at all the above grounds.

Whichever way you look at it, it's going to be a long season on the road!

Maybe it's a good time to start reading War and Peace....
