Rotherham United start their pre-season friendly games with their usual trip to the Roundwood Sports Complex where they take on Parkgate.

Parkgate FC was established in 1969 and called BSC Parkgate and joined the, then, Sheffield and Hallamshire County Senior League. In 1974, the club joined the Yorkshire Football League Division Three. In 1982 the Yorkshire Football League merged with Midland League and became the Northern Counties East Football League.

1990 saw a name change when they became RES Parkgate dropping the RES four years later.

In the past, Parkgate have been Northern Counties East Division One Champions (2006/7) and, in the same season, they won the Wilkinson Sword Trophy. In 1983/4 and again in 1998/9 they were the Rotherham Charity Cup winners and have three times been runners up in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Senior Cup.

Last season saw the Steelmen finish top of Division One of the Northern Counties East League and start next season in the Premier Division.

This fixture last season saw first half goals from Cohen Bramall and Georgie Kelly win the game for the Millers.

The game takes place on FRIDAY, 5th JULY with a 7pm kick-off.
