Millers in New Legal Row

Millers in New Legal Row

Rotherham United and former chairman, Ken Booth, are set to battle it out again over the row of who owns what at Millmoor says The Star.

Earlier this year the former chairman and landlord tried to repossess the ground after it was claimed the club owed him thousands of pounds unpaid rent. The case went to Rotherham County Court but was adjourned after the club started it's own action at the High Court in Leeds.

Directors say four leases on the ground, changing rooms, Hooton Roberts training ground and the Tivoli nightspot that were negotiated in December 2004 were 'a sham.' The club disputes the valuation of the land when the leases were drawn up and want the High Court to set them aside.

It has now been revealed that CF Booth Ltd, Mr Booth's company, is to go to the High Court next week to say that the action taken by the club be 'struck out.'

Giles Brearley, Director of Finance for The Millers, said, 'It's a very, very complex case involving issues around company law and the interaction of the Company's Act. But the board and our directors believe there is a strong case to answer.'

The lawyer for CF Booth Ltd, Elaine Skittrell said that the decision by the club to start High Court proceedings had come as a shock and carried on, 'These are serious matters.'

At the County Court hearing in December it was agreed that the clubs directors would pay £13, 220 rent arrears and also any rent that becomes due during the Court action.
