ROTHERHAM United have scored with Barclays.

The bank has provided support and working capital facilities for the football club which started out in 1870 as Thornhill Football Club and moved into its new stadium earlier this year.

Rotherham United chairman, Tony Stewart, said: “Barclays has been a traditional banking partner for me for over 10 years and the South Yorkshire team has provided the football club with a modern and innovative approach, enabling us to build this fantastic new stadium. This has allowed us to move the business forward, grow with confidence and plan with certainty for the future of the club.”

Barclays relationship director Matthew Chenery said: “The stadium is a massive boost for the town of Rotherham and our facilities will not only help with the completion of the stadium but also provide the facilities for fans to pay for season tickets in a flexible and convenient way.”
