Rotherham Titans and Rotherham Town in ground fixture clash

ROTHERHAM Titans and Rotherham Town Cricket Club are once again on a collision course over their ground share at Clifton Lane, with another fixture clash looming this weekend.

Titans are due to play their first home game of their new season at home to Sale FC on Saturday, the same day Rotherham Town have their final South Yorkshire Senior League fixture against Upper Haugh.

Titans insist their match will go ahead while the cricket club have declined to comment.

The ground-owning Rotherham Athletic Company have indicated the date falls within Town's Clifton Lane time frame, giving them precedence.

The rugby club argue that there are no written rules and that the cricket club has not co-operated and has known about the clash since the start of its season.

A similar hand-over dispute occurred last year.

This week Titans were getting Clifton Lane ready for rugby.
