RUFC - Millers won`t B & Q it!


Rotherham United are wanting to move away from Millmoor and build a 15 000 seater community stadium but have said that although it would have been a prime spot they won`t be moving to the site where the B & Q is now situated.

Millers Chairman, Denis Coleman, told The Advertiser, that the site had been considered as it is close to the town centre, but a feasibility study on it deemed it unsuitable and they are looking elsewhere.

Mr Coleman said that the board have given up hope of staying at Millmoor and will not be doing any more work on the ground. He said they need to get away because of high rents and a need to get the facilities fit for the 21st Century.

The Chairman said he is having regular meetings with the local authority and it is believed that a stadium steering committee has been set up which includes members of Rotherham Council and club officials but this has not been confirmed. Although, the council have said they will help by building a community stadium to help boost the local sporting scheme and have educational and recreational facilities included. Depending on the eventual scale of the project it has been estimated that the cost will be around £25m.

And, it could well be a long process as Mr Coleman pointed out, 'If we were to start work on a new stadium today there are so many things to consider it would take another two seasons after this one before we were in it.

'We need to be a hundred percent sure if we start the stadium we can finish it, we can`t afford to start something and not get it finished.`

It might have been a bit difficult playing there with people coming in all the time wanting tools I suppose (though there were a few on the pitch on Tuesday night!!!)
