Have your say

ROTHERHAM United head into today’s home game against Bristol Rovers with the pieces of the jigsaw fitting much better.

That’s the view of manager Andy Scott who says the evidence of recent games shows that the unity of the group is a lot more solid.

“There may be a lot of different factors but everyone can see it and feel it,” he said.

“It’s taken a lot longer than hoped but the jigsaw is fitting together much better.”

* Millers followers who lost out in the aborted Buy-a-Brick scheme in 2005 when a new stand was to be built at their old ground at Millmoor, have welcomed the decision of the present hierarchy to have a commemorative plaque in the new stadium.

It will carry the names and messages of all those who paid for bricks for the previous stand. That project, of course, was never finished and fans feared they would lose out altogether.

However, supporters group Millers Trust have always said they would follow this through and have been instrumental in the present board agreeing to having a plaque in the New York Stadium.

“We gratefully accept the club’s acceptance of our request for this plaque and to install it,” said Trust chairman Mark Thomas.

He said it was the sole responsibility of the Trust to verify all details of subscribers and the updating process would begin immediately.

Those who subscribed can update their details either in person at the next three home games (starting today) between 1.45pm and 2.30pm at the Millers Trust desk opposite the club shop kiosk at DVS; online by visiting and completing the Update Form; or by posting Update Forms to Millers Trust, Rotherham United Commercial dept., Mangham House, Parkgate S61 4RJ.

Deadline is March 31.
