RUFC - A little history about Saturday's opponents

Rotherham United play their first friendly in Rotherham at the Roundwood Stadium against Parkgate FC this coming Saturday - so here`s a short history about our opponents.

The Steelmen are in the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division finishing seventh in the league last season.

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.

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.

Doug Shelley has been Manager since 2010 and the Chairman is Albert Dudill.

In the friendly last season Gareth Evans opened the scoring for the Millers with Nathan Forbes-Swindells getting an equaliser on the half-time mark and Luke Beedham getting the winner for the Millers just after the second half began.

The game on Saturday (14th July) has a changed kick-off time which is now 12 Noon. It is Pay On The Day and prices are Adults 5 - Concessions 3.
