Rotherham United Women Football Club is an English women's football club based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The club currently play in the North East Regional Women's League Premier Division.


The club was formed in 1969 as Kilnhurst Shooting Stars. The club has played in the Women's FA Cup on several occasions.[1]

Ahead of season 2010–11, manager Paul Durrands boosted his squad with a number of players from FA WSL clubs Doncaster Rovers Belles and Lincoln Ladies.[2] Shortly after joining from Lincoln, winger Paige Crossman was called up to the England U19 squad.[3][4] After leading the table for much of the campaign, a late-season slump saw the Lady Millers miss out on automatic promotion. But victories over Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle United in the play-offs secured a return to the Premier League Northern Division after two years away.[5]
