RUFC - Wear Red!

Join The Vital Debate





Rotherham United are back where they belong - Rotherham - and in a brand new stadium with this Saturday seeing the first ever League game to be played there. And even though most of us have already been to the New York Stadium there is still an excitement in the air as the 2012/13 season begins.

The Millers first ever goal scored in their former home, Millmoor, was in September 1907 by Algernon Pynegar and the last one at Millmoor was scored by Jamie Green in May 2008 - both local lads. Millers` fans who turn out on Saturday at the New York Stadium possibly won't see a Rotherham born player score the opening League goal - in fact, probably won't see a Rotherham born player on the pitch. Which I find a bit of a shame.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to death with the players that Manager Steve Evans has brought in and I really think that we are going to do well with those players. But, the nostalgia inside me does think that it would be nice to see a Rotherham born player on the score sheet on Saturday.

The game is a sell-out and the club are urging people to get there early with Chairman Tony Stewart asking everyone to wear red. There is to be entertainment before the game in the shape of the Royal Scots Guards Pipe and Drum Band and a balloon release and card display from every spectator plus former Miller and England centre-half Dave Watson will be there alongside big Millers` fan Chris Wolstenholme from Muse.

Bring It ON!
