RUFC - Scott excited by ground developments

RUFC - Scott excited by ground developments

Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott is very excited about the new ground and is keeping an eye on the way the stadium is developing.

The Millers have put up a webcam (which can be seen on the Official Site and also stickied on Millers Mumblings on Vital Rotherham) for fans to watch as the new ground takes place.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Scott said, 'Me being a football manager, I`m no architect, so people have had to sit me down and tell me what`s going on. But I`ve seen the plans and it`s very exciting. Our Commercial Director, Steve Coakley and the directors have had a real hands-on approach to how we lay it out in all areas. We`ve had meetings about what`s required and where we want different rooms etc.

'The Chairman has been meticulous with the design, which isn`t going to stop because we`ve started building. There is no one better, from a footballing point of view than the physio, the kit man, the manager and staff, who knows what is right and he`s willing to ask our opinions on what and how we want things.

'This is going to be a legacy to the Chairman, the football club and Rotherham as a whole, so it`s important to get it right because you want to put your mark on something that is as important as this is to the town. We want local people to come and enjoy a fantastic facility watching a good side playing good football.`

Scott also thinks that having a new ground to play in will make players want to come to the Millers, adding, 'We`ve signed a lot of players on one year contracts with the incentive that if they do well then they will get another year. Credit to them for signing those contracts but, of course, when you have a facility like this then players will want to be playing in a good ground with a nice pitch and it gives you a boost.`
