'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - On This Day - 26th May

It's football's 'close' season at the moment but what happened in the past with the Millers ...

26th May 2012

It was a year ago today that former midfielder and caretaker Manager Andy Liddle was predicting that the Millers would take League Two by storm the following season and get promoted.

On Vital Rotherham we were asking 'do you believe` firstly that we might get promoted and secondly in the new Manager Steve Evans who was quite quickly winning over the Millers fans with his quick humour and, perhaps more importantly, the fact that he was keeping us, the fans, informed of the happenings with the club - something I don`t think we`d had before.

26th May 2011

Two years ago we found out that the club were hoping to hold onto Ryan Taylor and Nicky Law by offering them both, what Andy Scott was calling, 'incentive contracts.`

We were also told that both Jason Taylor and Dale Tonge had indicated that they would sign new contracts with the Millers. Andy Scott said he was also waiting for Ollie Banks to decide if he was going to sign the contract that had been offered.

Meanwhile Andy Scott was playing the waiting game and he told us that he had offered new players contracts and was waiting for them to get back in touch with him or the club.

26th May 2010

Rotherham United were in the throws of Wembley fever with the League Two Play-Off Final on the horizon.

There was a chance to see the players and management in All Saints Square ahead of them travelling to London and we were told that after just five days of selling them more than fifteen thousand tickets had been sold for the game against Dagenham.

26th May 2008

Five years ago today Manager Mark Robins was delighted to have made his first signing of the summer when Micky Cummins arrived from Darlington.

26th May 2007

Former Matlock striker Tom Cahill revealed that he was just two days away from signing to play college football in the USA when he got a call from Mark Robins to come and join the Millers.

26th May 2006

It was all quiet down Millmoor way and we were speculating on who would and who wouldn't be with the Millers at the start of the next season - the starting on minus ten points probably making it easier for players to move on. We also worried that, if we didn't delve into the transfer market soon all that would be left was the players no one else wanted.
