Reserve league meeting set for Millers home...Rotherham United’s New York Stadium will open its doors to representatives of the Central League on Friday.
The Central League, which the Millers’ reserves compete in, along with teams nationwide, will host its Annual General Meeting at New York, with club and league representatives finalising plans for the new reserve team season, including league structure and membership.
Paul Douglas, Rotherham United’s Chief Operating Officer, and board member of the Central League is delighted to be hosting the meeting at the home of the Millers.
“It’s pleasing to have the chance to showcase the stadium to representatives from a number of Football League clubs who may not have already had a chance to visit us. We’re happy to host the event here, and it will provide a very good setting for the meeting.
“Rotherham United will once again be entering the Central League next season after it proved invaluable last year. With a competitive squad fighting for first-team action, Steve (Evans) was able to put those players into games who had previously missed out on a starting berth in the first team, and they complemented the youngsters, of whom one was given a full debut, and two more were offered professional deals.
“We believe that the Central League is a competition that can only benefit our team, and the restructure last season led to a very competitive campaign.”
Meanwhile, the Football League have also commented on travelling to Rotherham for the meeting, adding: “The Central league is delighted to be holding its AGM at the excellent New York Stadium. Rotherham United have been a valued member of the league for many years and we are honoured they will be providing our venue for 2013,” a spokesperson added.
