Last updated : 29 May 2008 By Bigrich.....
After mounting speculation over the last couple of days, the news has been confirmed by Tony Stewart that the club will move over the Sheffield border this summer and play at Don Valley Stadium.

Speaking to the clubs official site, Tony admitted that the move is a blow, but is best for the club.

"This is a momentous step for us but I am determined that every deal that this club enters in to is workable and financially viable. I have no intention of seeing this club hit the financial rocks again and I am sure our supporters would expect nothing less, We have done all we could to allow this club to stay at Millmoor but I am not going to wallow in this, we are going to make sure that we make our time at Don Valley as exciting as it can be and trust that our supporters will back us through this period as they always have."

"We will work doubly hard with the Rotherham Borough Council, and other interested parties to ensure that the new Community Stadium becomes a reality as soon as possible. In the meantime we will now press ahead with plans for the coming season which have been held up by the discussions over Millmoor." he added.
