RUFC - Chairman 'no excuses'

RUFC - Chairman 'no excuses'

Rotherham United Chairman Tony Stewart says that everyone will be a little nervous tomorrow as the Millers play the first ever league game at the New York Stadium.

Yes most of us have already been to the new stadium and marvelled at our 'new home' with the friendly games and then last week the Cup took over but, let's be honest, it's the League that's the bread and butter to our club.

Speaking to The Advertiser Mr Stewart said, 'It's a big occasion and there are league points at stake - but there is so much more to be excited about.

'The response to the new stadium has been incredible and I go down every day and see people walking round it and saying nice things about it. The four home games we've had so far couldn't have gone better with the away supporters joining in with the spirit of the thing. With the kop filled against Sheffield United the sound generated resonated around and made the hair stand on end - something we never had a Don Valley. And the enthusiasm of the crowd made a difference to the players and the Manager had a smile on his face when he heard the chants adopted for him.'

Speaking about this season in League Two, Mr Stewart said, 'Make no mistake, the first three league games are going to be a challenge and we will need to be on our mettle but that's something we will relish. Everybody talks about a good start but we have a fresh momentum because we have a new ground and a new manager and we demand three points. The team knows that, the manager knows that and with everything in place there will be no excuses.'
