Society calls for a Millmoor rethink
September the 21st, 2009
The Society has written to Councillor Gerald Smith asking him to redouble efforts to buy Millmoor as a Community Stadium.  The home of Rotherham United since 1907, the Stadium should be modernised and extended rather than a new Stadium being built at a yet to be decided venue.  If the Local Authority were serious about sustainable development they would see that there is only one way forward.  The other route will saddle the football club with unsustainable debt, end professional football in the town and leave a rusting hulk at the centre of Masbrough.
