Rotherham rugby club to play on

Rotherham Rugby Union Football Club has dodged oblivion to secure its future after a local consortium gave it the backing it needed to survive.

In August the club had looked doomed after creditors started proceedings to reclaim their money and the club’s directors said it was ‘unlikely’ it could secure the necessary injection of funds to continue trading.

But late last week the club revealed that a takeover had been completed and approved by the RFU. The deal involves the birth of a new club, with the old one to go into administration.

Martin Jenkinson, director of the new Rotherham Titans Rugby Union Football Club, thanked investors including Rotherham borough council for saving the club.

‘Today marks the birth of a new club, which will draw on the best traditions and practices of the former and use that experience to take it forward,’ he said.
