Since our inception way back in Feb 2001 the RUST steering group have been hard at work for the Millers fans and this is a summary of what we have done so far
RUST @ Rotherham Show.
RUST were present at the Rotherham Show on the weekend of September 6th & 7th.
Luckily the weather held out for us and we were able to play 'Kick Branstons Teeth In!', for those that are wondering, it was a take off from SKY Sports Soccer AM game Feed The Goat.
We had over 200 people trying to kick a ball through Guy's mouth, with prizes for the winners of the two age groups.
The two winners were Cpl Mark Grundy. (A Hull City fan) who won the Adult group and scored 4 out of 10. The winner for the under 16 group was Ashley Liversedge who scored 5 out of 10.
Over the weekend another 25 people signed up for RUST membership, taking our membership around the 400 mark.
RUST would like to thank BLIST for putting in the time and effort in yet another class cartoon, everybody that helped us out and of course everybody that came on the stall.
The Rotherham United Supporters Trust held our first Annual General Meeting on the 13th of May 2002.
Again the meeting was well attended and an auction of various items raised over £500 for RUST funds..
The latest fans forum RUST held was again held at the Carlton Park Hotel and took place on the 8th of April 2002.
The meeting was very well attended with 300 members and non-members coming along to have a Q&A session with newly appointed RUFC director Mr Trevor Smallwood.
The first official fans forum took place on 4th October 2001 at the Carlton Park Hotel. Over 100 people attended a constructive meeting which provided strong viewsand opinions to take back to the club. RUST also held a survey to present to the club which is intended to be used as a yardstick to assess the clubs performance on a range of issues.
An historical night at Magna on 16th August 2001. The Rotherham United Supporters Trust was officially launched. Ronnie Moore and John Breckin became our first members. Brian Chapple and Alan Lee were there as were Darren Garner and Rob Scott. A truly great night and one where over 100 people signed up to the Trust.
RUST members also have the advantage of being able to buy Match Tickets before they go on General Sale.
