Club Statement

19 November 2013

Rotherham United Football Club fully understands and appreciates the presence of press reporting within football  both nationally and locally, yet felt it necessary following an article written in last weeks Rotherham Advertiser (15th November 2013), to meet yesterday with representatives of the publication.

It is with deepest regret that following the decision to publish such a disproportionate story, the Board of Directors felt there was no alternative but to withdraw the privileged access the Rotherham Advertiser has enjoyed for a number of years.
Rotherham United Football Club work tirelessly within the community and proudly won Community Club of the Year in 2012, with the Club currently being recognised by the Football League via its Family Excellence Award and the offending article is a complete misrepresentation of our relationship with our supporters. 

It is the Board's belief that our supporters will understand and support our current stance on this important point of principle, and we will do our utmost to deliver club updates and information in a timely and accurate fashion via other media/press channels.
