RUFC - We have to move from Millmoor

RUFC - We have to move from Millmoor

Rotherham United Chairman, Denis Coleman has told The Advertiser that there is no magic solution to the problems at Millmoor and that the only way is to move away from the ground.

The rent at Millmoor is the highest in League Two at £16,380 per month and the club is also responsible for all repairs to the ground. Relationships between the club and the owners, the Booth family, are still strained which rules out any possibility of buying and redevloping Millmoor.

With crowds falling below 4,000 it is obvious the way to encourage new fans is to move to a new comfortable, modern stadium.

Mr Coleman said, 'We have found some land and we are trying to do a deal. We hope to be able to say if this is possible in the next two or three months. We have to move from Millmoor, we can't carry on how we are, the rent is too high. The board of directors has been pulling rabbits out of hats but we can't keep on doing that forever - unless we bring Paul Daniels in!

'If it was just a matter of constructing a new stadium we would have one within a year but there are many other things to consider.'
