RUFC - Millers Confident They Can Move Forward

RUFC - Millers Confident They Can Move Forward

Rotherham United's Chief Operating Officer Paul Douglas says that the club are doing all they can to make the people of Rotherham proud.

Well, there's no denying that the New York Stadium has brought back a bit of colour to the streets of Rotherham on a Saturday which is something Chairman Tony Stewart always said that it would. It's a wonderful stadium and has helped to make the season what it was right until the last day when over eleven thousand fans, mostly dressed in red and white, spilled from the terraces onto the pitch when the referee blew his whistle to celebrate promotion.

Speaking to The Star Mr Douglas said, 'The recent history of our club has been boom and bust but we are taking steps to mitigate against that now. We have a wonderful facility of which we can all be proud and give the supporters a level of service they can be proud of too. We want to keep moving forward and we are confident we can do that.'

Well I've never had a problem - apart from the first couple of weeks when the season ticket scanner facility wasn't working but we always expect teething problems don't we - but I know some people who weren't exactly 'proud' of the way they were treated in the corporate area and there was an article in the Rotherham Advertiser on a similar line last week.

But the Millers are definitely looking towards the future and Mr Douglas carried on, 'We are doing a lot of hard work with the academy and we`re hopeful, confident in fact, that can become one of the very best in the country and the level we are playing.'

I love it when the 'home grown' players come through the ranks and get into the first team and I think there should be more of that in football.

'We've got a wonderful community section here which is doing some excellent work and it`s all part of our work to make people feel proud of us and get the right structures in place behind the scenes,' said Mr Douglas. 'We want people to say that Rotherham are a class act off the pitch as well as on it.'

And that's all good isn't it - we are a community club and the Rotherham United Community Sports Trust (RUCST) are doing a sterling job going round schools helping with their existing PE programmes, joining in the Better Reading schemes as well as running after school's clubs and Soccer Schools.
