RUFC - What do we know about Stocksbridge PS

Rotherham United will be sending a team to play Stocksbridge Park Steels on Tuesday to the Look Local Stadium (Bracken Moor).
Stocksbridge PS were formed in 1986 when two clubs, Stocksbridge Works FC and Stocksbridge Club Oxley Park Sports F.C merged.

In the late 80's and early 90's the club spent a lot of money on their Bracken Moor Stadium in order to aid the club to rise through the non-league system.

In 1993/4 Steels won the Premier Division of the NCEL, but the ground improvements were deemed not good enough for them to take up their place in the Unibond League.
Last season Stocksbridge PS finished thirteenth in the Northern Premier League, Premier Division.

The Look Local Stadium, which changed it`s name from the Bracken Moor Stadium in 2006 holds 3,500 supporters and Stocksbridge have an average gate of two hundred, although two thousand turned up for a friendly against Sheffield Wednesday in October 1991 which marked the inauguration of the ground's floodlights.

Famous players for the Steels include Chris Waddle, who made one appearance, former Millers Richard Tracey and Andy Kiwomya and former Scunthorpe midfielder Wayne Bullimore.

Last week the Steels comfortably beat a Sheffield Wednesday side, that contained five first team players, two-nil with an own goal from Ayo Obileye and a Mark Ward free kick.

Last season the Millers sent a team to the Look Local Stadium at Stocksbridge where the Steels won one-nil and only good saves from Jamie Annerson kept it down to one.
