Millmoor's a no-go says Stewart

ROTHERHAM United chairman Tony Stewart says there are too many obstacles in the way of the club making a temporary return to Millmoor.

The Millers are due to complete two more full seasons at Sheffield's Don Valley Stadium before their new £20 million ground is built at the Guest and Chrimes site.

Don Valley remains an unpopular with some supporters who would rather see the club make a brief switch back to Millmoor as the first step in a permanent return to Rotherham.

Even when his search for a suitable stadium site was hitting problems, Stewart ruled out Millmoor as an option and his opinion had not changed this week.

He told the Advertiser: "We have signed a lease at Don Valley and we would have to break a lease to make a new lease.

"It is now 18 months to two years since we left Millmoor and there are health and safety issues there. In addition we would have to do a deal with the landlords, the Booths.

"There are too many obstacles in the way. My energies are focussed on building a fantastic new stadium for the club which we can move into in 2012."

Rumours have been fuelled by ongoing building work at Millmoor.
