Rotherham hosted a big 'town centre thank you' last night following Rotherham United's triumphant victory in the League One play-off final at Wembley.

Fans of the Mighty Millers flocked to show their appreciation, when the triumphant team travelled on an open-top bus from the New York Stadium around the town centre to All Saints Square and on to Rotherham Town Hall for a civic reception.

After the club achieved their dream of Championship football on Sunday, the Council organised a town centre event to allow loyal fans to join in the party at the end of yet another amazing football season for the Millers.

Fans gathered to hear short speeches and interviews with the players, manager Steve Evans and chairman Tony Stewart, before the team moved on to Rotherham Town Hall for a civic reception.

The event was a repeat of last year's open-top celebration when football fans turned out to say "well done" to the team for scoring an automatic promotion to League One.
