Chairman Tony Stewart has given the FL body his word that work is underway with Rotherham Council to have a new ground built in the town within that said period.

As supporters await news of another possible points deduction ahead of the League Two season, Stewart explained to today's Star: "I am planning to move forward to get the stadium in Rotherham built and that is the aim and that is what the Football League have been told.

"We are looking at plans and putting flesh on the bones of thoughts and the overall idea. The League are looking for that to give them comfort in that they know we are moving forward and being constructive that this dream of a stadium is going forward and we are putting a real plan in place.

"We are working with Rotherham Borough Council who are always being pro-active. Council leader Roger Stone and Chief executive Mike Cuff instigated things and plans are afoot to get the new stadium in four years.

"We've told them we're not going to be at the Don Valley for the next 15 years, they don't want that, they want us in Rotherham.

"This plan is good for Rotherham as a whole not just the football club - we are looking at a future plan for Rotherham. This is not a quick fix, it is a long fix", he added.
