Millers welcome Oscar

20 January 2016

Millers continue with Random Act of Kindness...

Rotherham United recently welcomed Oscar for his first visit to AESSEAL New York Stadium as part of the club’s matchday Random Act of Kindness scheme.

Through the Rotherham United Community Sports Trust, the Millers posted a message on Twitter offering two front row tickets for the recent home game with Queens Park Rangers.

The Trust asked fans to offer reasons why they deserved the tickets and Oscar’s response that he really wanted to watch his first ever game won over the judging panel.

Oscar and his parents were greeted at the stadium by Head of Community Jamie Noble and club captain Lee Frecklington who gave them access to pitch level to watch the Millers during the warm up.

“The Random Act of Kindness is proving to be a very popular part of our matchday operation,” said Jamie.

“We were delighted to welcome Oscar and his family who came down for his first ever game. We took them pitchside to meet Lee Frecklington where they had pictures taken, and Oscar even had a quick game with Lee before taking their seats for the game.”

The Random Act of Kindness is now a firm part of the Millers' matchday schedule, giving supporters unique behind the scenes opportunities at their football club.

Recently, Millers' fan Donald was given dressing room access prior to a home game and the opportunity to meet with manager Neil Redfearn in his office.

Jamie added:

“We have had a number of activities at games this season which has included ticket giveaways, stadium tours, allowing fans to watch the players warm up and visits into the dressing room and manager’s office.

“We will be continuing with the Random Act of Kindness at every home game so look out for members of our team who are always on hand to try and improve your Rotherham United matchday experience.”
