Rotherham United Community Sports Trusts (Millers Community Jobshop ) over the last 18 months has had many reasons to celebrate the commitment and the successes of people that attend the DROP-IN JOBSHOP at Rotherham United’s New York Stadium .
We wish every one of them success going forward in their new employment, training and education. There is one individual that deserves a special mention in that against all the knockback over the last 12 months Mr Ian Haworth has stayed positive throughout the trials and tribulations of employment to unemployment back to employment and so on.
Ian has regained employment again (Well done) with a local company and is looking to secure some sustainability going forward in these tough times. The double Celebration is not only Ian securing employment but also he is approaching 50 years of being a Miller and attending many matches both home and away.
Ian says he attended his first football match on his 3rd birthday as a present from his grandmother when they played Ipswich Town and drew 2 -2 back in the early sixties.
His grandmother knew the grounds man at the time Mr Albert Wilson when Mr Wilson retired Ian continued under the mentorship of Mr Bill Kirby.
As Ian got older he became a member of the ground staff and helped out around Millmoor. He went on to be part of the Millers United Committee ventured into D-Jing and playing music at the club on match days and furthermore assisted with the clubs junior football teams.
Ian’s all time favourite players at Rotherham United are Tony Towner and Ronnie Moore.
We wish Ian well in both his career aspirations and his continued and passionate support of Rotherham United Football Club.
A milestone worth celebrating.
