RUFC - Players can't wait to move to new ground

Rotherham United midfielder, Danny Harrison is one of a handful of players who will hope to be playing for the Millers when they move into their new stadium who has also played for them at their other two homes.

Andy Warrington, Dale Tonge, Paul Warne and Ryan Cresswell have also played at Millmoor and Don Valley in the red and white shirts.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, twenty-seven year old Harrison said, 'The stadium is a big thing. Each time you go past the site you see new things happening. Millmoor was an old school type of ground and Don Valley is more an athletics stadium but this one is going to be tailor made to Rotherham United. It will be good to get back into the town centre again and I want to be part of that. I love playing for Rotherham and always have done.

'It`s strange to say you`ve played for one club for five years and played in three different places as your home ground and it will be great to get into the new stadium and there will be a lot more fans behind the team as well..`

Dale Tonge said that a new ground will be 'massive for the club` saying that it will boost attendances. 'It will get us out of Sheffield because no one really likes it there,` the former Barnsley defender said.

'I`ve been through all the rubbish here - administrations, not getting paid and that sort of stuff - and it will be nice to see the club come out the other end with a new ground and promotion. It`s nothing less than the fans deserve.`

Meanwhile, skipper, Cresswell said, 'I don`t want to get ahead of myself but it would be great to lead the team out at the new ground for the first game.

'The Chairman has showed us the stadium plans and they`re fantastic. I think it will be the best new ground in the area and we can`t wait to play in it and it means that much more because I`m a Rotherham lad and a Rotherham fan.`
