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

RUFC - What do we know about Parkgate FC?

Rotherham United return to their home town this evening for the first time since leaving Millmoor in May 2008 when they 'visit` Roundwood Sports Complex to take on Parkgate FC.

The Roundwood ground is no stranger to the Millers players as they have trained there for the last couple of seasons and will continue to do so until they move to the new training complex at Brinsworth.

Parkgate FC was established in 1969 and called BSC Parkgate and joined the, then, Sheffield and Hallamshire County Senior League. In 1974, the club joined the Yorkshire Football League Division Three. In 1982 the Yorkshire Football League merged with Midland League and became the Northern Counties East Football League.

In 1990 they changed their name to RES Parkgate dropping the RES four years later.

Last season Parkgate had a very successful season, finishing second in the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division. On 3 May Parkgate finished runners up in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup at Hillsborough to Stocksbridge.

In the past, Parkgate have been Northern Counties East Division One Champions (2006/7) and, in the same season, they won the Wilkinson Sword Trophy. In 1983/4 and again in 1998/9 they were the Rotherham Charity Cup winners and have three times been runners up in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup.
