History

In 1899, Rotherham Casuals and Rotherham Grammar School combined to form Rotherham F.C. On becoming a limited company in 1904 a new name of Rotherham Athletic was adopted, and a year later they changed their name again, to Rotherham Town (which had been the name of a former Football League club from the town).

In 1903 the new club joined the Midland League, where they remained until 1925, when they merged with their Third Division North neighbours Rotherham County to form Rotherham United.
