Millers' 18-month search for stadium site ends

ROTHERHAM United have finally settled on a site for a new stadium after a painstaking 18-month search.
The privately owned piece of land, covering 15 acres, "ticks all the boxes," according to chairman Tony Stewart
Speaking to the Advertiser last night, Stewart declined to name the location because negotiations were continuing but described the latest development as "exciting news." He said: "It is a comfortable location for Rotherham United and it suits Rotherham Borough Council, who have worked with us on this project.
"We've put a bid in to the owners and environmental tests are being done to ensure the site is OK.
"Things are looking good but there are still issues to work through.
"However, I hope I will be in a position to make an announcement soon."
The Millers, meanwhile, visit minnows Wealdstone on Sunday seeking a first FA Cup win in seven years.
Manager Ronnie Moore needs a lift after seeing his side slip three points off the automatic promotion pace in League Two.
He warned: "It's not so long ago that another non-league team, Forest Green Rovers, knocked us out, so we've got to be ready."
