No more Rotherham Town Football Club

May 25, 1896
Rotherham will not have the chance next season of witnessing at home any good football league matches. The Town Club are knocked out of the Second Division of the League, they have not applied to join the Midland, or, indeed, any other league, and have been suspended by the Sheffield Challenge Cup organisation. To sum up the misfortunes, the landlords are now advertising that the Clifton Grove Football Ground is to let.
