Ken Booth

2 July 2013

Rotherham United were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Chairman, Ken Booth.

With the club on the brink of collapse in 1987, Mr Booth, who had a 15 month spell as a director of the club previously, stepped in to save the club from liquidation. Ken played a vital role in securing the future of the club, wiping the club’s debts and after a struggling first decade in charge, appointed fans' favourite Ronnie Moore as manager who led the club to back-to-back promotions and a four season spell in the Championship. 

The Booth family eventually sold the club in December 2004.

Rotherham United Football Club would like to offer their condolences to Mr Booth’s family at this sad time.
