Millers move back on the cards

25 November 2010 03:00
Rotherham`s planning permission application for their new stadium has been approved by the Council. The Millers have been playing at Sheffield's Don Valley Stadium since 2008 after they were unable to strike a deal to remain at Millmoor which had been their home since 1907. However, their time in Sheffield could now soon coming to an end after the go ahead was given for a new stadium to be situated on the old Guest and Chrimes Foundry site in Rotherham town centre, land which United chairman Tony Stewart bought in January this year. Stewart told the club`s official website: "We are delighted that the Council have supported the application, for what is a significant regeneration scheme in Rotherham which is proceeding at a pace despite the worst recession in 30 years. "This represents another significant step towards our goal of bringing the Millers back home to Rotherham and we`re all determined to make Rotherham United a football club that everyone in the town can not only be proud of but will feel a part of too."
