The Millers visit Parkgate to get the 'Best Buy'
2 September 2011
The Millers visited Parkgate yesterday to hold a football skills session with the chance to win prizes provided by the club and Best Buy.
The Community Sports Trust coaches ran a 'Skills Skool', Keep Up Competiton and a Penalty Shoot-out with the chance to win Rotherham United home and away shirts and an XBox 360 donated by Best Buy.
Millers Commercial Director Steve Coakley said: "We are always keen to undertake as many activities as we possibly can throughout the summer school holidays and our long-standing partnership with Parkgate provides a perfect venue in order to do this. Since the recent opening of Best Buy we have also established a very mutually advantageous relationship and they have been very proactive with their support of our GOALZ centre which has been fantastic for the development and success of the project."
Participation Officer Jamie Noble said: "The session has been really good and there's seen plenty of young people taking part. There was a real buzz when Ryan Cresswell & Tom Newey came and youngsters stayed to meet them and get an autograph."
Ryan and Tom even tried their hand at football using the Kinect on XBox 360, much to the amusement of Best Buy staff and customers, one comment was; "I thought these lads played football for a living." as the players were dancing around infront of the console and not managing to score.
Jamie commented: "I'm sure there will be more opportunities to do this kind of event this year, it has been really successfull, I just hope the players can get more practice before then."
The winners of the prizes will be contacted shortly.
