News in brief

YOUNG Millers’ fans can kick-start a career with the club, in a scheme similar to Lord Alan Sugar’s The Apprentice.

Rotherham United will host sessions for over 16 year olds, who are not in any job or full-time study, then select a group of five to go on to a “get ready for work” placement. After 12 weeks one of them will start a six month apprenticeship with Rotherham United Community Sports Trust. The project will be run between the Trust and Parkgate Shopping.

Millers defender Dale Tonge, also the club’s Community Cohesion Ambassador, said: “This kind of opportunity doesn’t come up often and I hope lots of young people will put themselves forward”. Contact Cohesion Officer Mark Cummins at or ring 01709 827767.

CONISBROUGH & Denaby Main Heritage Group will host a talk by Jim Beachill, about Hadrians, Wall at Conisbrough’s Ivanhoe Centre from 7.15pm on January 27. Admission is £1.50 members, £2 non-members.
