RUFC - A Look Back at the

Let's have a look back at what was happening with the Millers on this day in the last few years ...

18 June 2010

On this day last year, Ronnie Moore was pleased that the first game of the season was going to be at Don Valley saying, 'You take what you are given but it's always nice to get a home start.' The Millers first game was to be against Lincoln City.

One of the rumours, on this day, was that new player, Ryan Cresswell, would be the skipper of Rotherham in the new season.

Ronnie Moore also said he was pleased that Danny Harrison had signed a new deal, saying, 'Danny had to work hard to get into the side but once he was in he was excellent.'

18 June 2009

With the fixtures just out, there was already doubt over the Millers second 'home' fixture of the season against Rochdale because of a U2 concert.

Don Valley is one of only two English venues where U2 are playing during a world tour and it is a sell-out. The concert takes place on, Thursday 20th August with the Millers game against Rochdale being two days later.

18 June 2008

The Millers would be leaving Millmoor for good at the end of June and there were rumours that the football ground was going to be turned into a dog track. Another idea was that it could be used for stock racing.

18 June 2007

This day four years ago, three players were released by the Millers. They were Richie Partridge, Pablo Mills and Justin Cochrane. Richie Partridge looked set to go to Chester City.

Peter Holmes and Mark Hudson had recently signed for Rotherham and Radio Rother FM's sports correspondent, Gerry Somerton said that they showed enthusiasm and thought it was good that both players wanted to come to Rotherham United.

18 June 2006

It was on this day that there were rumours that the Millers wanted to sign Richie Partridge from Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United midfielder, Ian Ross, was another player rumoured to be coming.

On the down side it looked like Paul Shaw would be leaving to join Chesterfield.
