Millers support Save Our Steel campaign...

Rotherham United were delighted to welcome workers from Tata Steel to Saturday’s final home game of the season with Blackburn Rovers to help raise awareness of the Save Our Steel campaign.

The representatives from Tata Steel took to the playing surface at AESSEAL New York Stadium at 2:45pm to parade the perimeter in hard hats and high visibility vests as they proudly carried banners with the ‘Save Our Steel’ message emblazoned across them.

Christopher Williamson, who is Branch Secretary at the Community Union, led the walk around at the Millers’ home and expressed his gratitude to the club for their backing at the weekend.

“We are extremely grateful for Rotherham United for inviting us to the AESSEAL New York Stadium for the game with Blackburn,” he beamed.

“The steel industry employs thousands of people in Rotherham and the surrounding areas, and is absolutely crucial to the local economy.

“It is a really tough time for many families, not just in South Yorkshire, but across the UK, but the support we have received from the public has provided a much needed boost."
