Millers target new training base

Rotherham United

Rotherham United owner Tony Stewart has said he has identified several sites for their new training ground.

The club's decision to quit Millmoor for Sheffield's Don Valley Stadium means they also have to leave their current Hooton Lodge training base.

Stewart told BBC Radio Sheffield he has several sites in mind.

"We have highlighted certain areas. I'm fine that we will have the facilities in place for the training of not just the first team but the youths as well."

Stewart will not disclose the sites he has identified but is confident the club will have a new training base for the 2008-2009 season.

"We've done the early investigations and we have got certain sites that will accommodate that."

In May the club confirmed they would be leaving the ground that had been their home since 1907.

Stewart made the decision to leave Millmoor after failing to agree terms for the lease of the stadium with landlords the Booth Family.

The deal included the lease of the training complex at Hooton Roberts.
