A spokesman said: “The club received an updated invoice and then paid over £2,000 following the last meter read and then accepted an increase in their monthly direct debit payments to avoid any future shocks.

The club revealed that their direct debit contribution will almost double going forward.

A spokesman said: “A full assessment of how this increase has happened will be carried out in the coming weeks and with a further increase on the cards when the current contract runs out later this year, the Millers face yet another financial challenge.

They added: “The club has also had significant travel costs this season following the FA’s decision to move the club into the Northern Premier East League from the Midland League.

The statement confirmed that the club are considering their options to “come up with ideas to raise the additional funds’ to help settle this bill.

They said: “Any suggestions or help from Sponsors, Supporters or those who care about the club would be much appreciated.”
