Luckock spoke about life after the Millers and praised the current board for making the new ground dream a reality.

“Mr Booth did all he could for 18 to 20 years. It was the right at that time to stand down and let someone else take over and it wasn't a time when he could start building a stadium himself."

“He's a controversial character only to people who don't know him. I know him on a personal basis and have spent a lot of time with him on team buses and so on and listened to what he'd achieved in life."

“He was putting a fortune into the club and he never got the credit for it and you can understand why his family said, ‘enough Ken.’"

“He was about 85 when he retired. I think the present chairman is the third in six years and Ken had it for 18, so it just shows what a difficult job it is."
