News: Players visit New York Stadium


Rotherham United's coaching and playing staff were given a guided tour of the New York Stadium this week.

The £20m, 12,000 seater stadium is currently under construction on the site of the former Guest & Chrimes foundry, in an area historically know as New York close to Rotherham town centre.

Captain Ryan Cresswell revealed the squad "cannot wait" for the opportunity to play in the new stadium.

"The stadium looks fantastic, the architecture is really impressive," he told the club's official site.

"The stands look huge and I am certain that the when we get into the stadium the place will be rocking. I am really looking forward to it, and the rest of the lads just can't wait."

Contractors, GMI Construction are making good progress on the development that is set to be completed in July 2012. The Millers have been playing home games at the Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield after leaving Millmoor in 2008.

Sub-contractors have made rapid progress, recently completing structural work on the four sides and starting work this week on the fourth corner which gives the stadium the bowl shape. Work also began this week on the iconic roof structure and frames are being installed for the glazing on the outside of the Eric Twigg Foods Pukka Pies Main stand.
