RUFC - Head-to-Head v Barnet

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Barnet
Come Saturday, it will be just 168 days since the final curtain went down on Millmoor after 101 years of highs, lows, dramas, happiness and tears.
Barnet, preparing themselves for their first ever trip to Don Valley this Saturday, were visitors on that historic date of May 3rd 2008.
Just 8 minutes had lapsed when Ryan Taylor headed a poor clearance from the Barnet defence down to Jamie Yates, and the yougster hit in Millmoor's last ever Football League goal from just outside the box.
4,834 were present that day, and although the move away from the famous old ground wasn't finalised at that point, most fans knew when Referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle, it not only signified the end of the game, and the end of another season, but it was also the end of an era.

The first ever Millmoor meeting of the 2 sides came during Barnet's first year as a Football League outfit.
February 22nd 1992 was the date, and promotion chasing Rotherham, were looking at getting back to winning ways as we had failed to get a victory in the previous 4 games, including a 5-1 reverse at Gillingham the previous Saturday.
Barnet sat in 3rd place in Division 4, while the Millers had slipped to 6th.
Just 6 week prior to this meeting, Rotherham had ripped apart Barnet at Underhill, when a Don Page hat-trick and further goals from Mark Todd and Shaun Goodwin helped the Millers to a 5-2 victory.
Mark Carter and leading marksman Gary Bull netting the Bees consolations.
At Millmoor though, Billy Mercer's net remained in tact as a first half goal by Defender Chris Hutchings, and second half strikes from Don Page and Tony Cunningham gave Rotherham a much needed 3-0 victory in front of 3,841.
Rotherham claimed 2nd promotion spot at the end of the season, while Barnet slipped to 7th and lost in the play-off semi finals to eventual winners Blackpool.
