Kiernan's double cracker

Two goals from the prolific Kiernan Hughes-Mason wrapped up victory for the young Lions against Southend United on Saturday morning.
Subsitute Hughes-Mason was on hand twice in the final 15 minutes to finally break through a resilient Shrimpers rearguard and secure a deserved victory for Scott Fitzgerald's charges.
Millwall dominated long spells of this match and nearly got off to a perfect start when Aiden O'Brien went close following good work by David Adedipe and Connor McLaren after six minutes.

Jake Gallacher and Ikenna Ofoche both produced crosses shortly after that somehow managed to elude the Millwall frontmen.
At the other end central defender Phil Stevenson was instrumental in denying Southend breaking the deadlock in the 12th minute with a well timed tackle to deny Kyle Asante a clear shot on goal.
During this brief spell of Southend pressure, McLaren and goalkeeper Wayne Drummond combined to thwart Asante again from picking his spot in front of goal.

In the 25th minute Ofoche blasted his drive over the United crossbar having been set up by Gallacher, whilst Adedipe was unfortunate not to break the deadlock on a couple of occasions with powerful runs into the danger zone.
Southend nearly opened their account seconds before the break when McLaren made a vital interception on the edge of the area. However, the ball fell kindly for Julian Okai and the latter's effort smacked the bar after goalkeeper Drummond had got the slightest of touches to the ball.
The second period opened with both French and O'Brien firing in shots on target which had Southend goalkeeper Bentley at full stretch, whilst the unchallenged Okai headed wide in front of goal.

Strikers Keirnan Hughes-Mason and John Marquis were introduced on the hour mark by Millwall and their first contribution almost put The Lions one up when Hughes-Mason flicked on to Marquis, whose effort was deflected for a corner.
Marquis again went close after 70 minutes following good work by Ofoche and Hughes-Mason.
Five minutes later the home side finally got their reward with a finely worked goal.
Stevenson's quick free-kick down the left found Grant Ludford, and his fine cross was swept past the keeper at the far post by the onrushing Hughes-Mason.

The Lions almost had a second minutes later when the United keeper beat Hughes-Mason to a through ball, but the clearance fell kindly to Marquis who's first time effort fizzed the wrong side of the upright.
In the 84th minute Millwall wrapped the game up with yet another superb effort by Hughes-Mason, who with his back to goal, held off his marker and hooked a shot over the keeper and into the far corner of the net.
It could have been three, but an injury-time header from Marquis smacked the woodwork.

Team: Drummond, McLaren, Ludford, Gallacher, Stevenson, Hegarty, Adedipe, Janneh, French (Marquis, 60mins), O'Brien (Hughes-Mason, 60mins), Ofoche (Fitzsimons, 85mins). Subs not used: Farmer, Kingsmill.


Help for Heros day at Millwall at the Wycome game


Milwall football club were the first club to support our armed forces and invite them down for a day at the den.

The last time was an amazing day for the troops and fans alike but was not widely publicised before the game.

This time it has been organised well in advance and we have plenty of warning to gather up our pennies to donate on the day to such a worthy cause.

The event will be held at the Wycome home game on Saturday 21st November. The troops will be there before and after the game to accept donations for their worthy cause and will also be invited onto the pitch beforekick off.


Stockport County 0  Millwall 4

Neil Harris hit his second hat-trick of the season as Millwall finally ended their awayday blues at the 13th attempt with an emphatic victory at Edgeley Park.
Chopper, who bagged a treble against AFC Bournemouth in the Carling Cup, struck after 24, 36 and 67 minutes - and could have finished with four goals if he had not seen his 39th-minute penalty saved by Owain Fon Williams.
Skipper Paul Robinson, back in the starting line up in a League game for the first time in 10 months, made it a perfect return as he opened the scoring on 16 minutes and then played his part as The Lions kept a clean sheet for the third time in four games.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett was forced to change his defensive formation with Scott Barron joining Andy Frampton and James Henry on the sidelines after sustaining an injury in training on Friday.
Having failed to win on their travels since 31st March, Jackett made five changes in total from the team that started at Swindon last weekend in a bid to find that winning formula away from The Den.

Skipper Robinson took his place in central defence alongside Tony Craig,
Alan Dunne returned to the starting line-up at right-back, with Danny Schofield replacing Dave Martin on the left. Chris Hackett filled in for Henry on the right flank and Harris partnered Steve Morison in place of Gary Alexander.

Alexander was joined on the bench by teenage defender Omar Beckles, making the cut for the senior squad for the first time.
The game started a frantic pace with Greg Tansey's low drive flashing wide on two minutes and then Hackett sending his fifth minute effort straight into the hands of Owen Fon Williams in the home goal.
Morison went close seconds later, picking up Dunne's angled pass before sending a rasping 20-yard shot narrowly over.

Morison was inches away from connecting with Harris' sublime switch pass, and it was from his persistence that The Lions won a 16th-minute corner.
Hackett's first delivery was put behind for another corner and when he swung the ball over for a second time, there was Robinson to plant a firm header home for the opening goal.

Lions fans behind the goal were celebrating again just six minutes later when Harris showed great instinct to capitalise on a woeful misplaced header by Paul Huntington and clipped the ball past Fon Williams for goal number two.
County nearly reduced the arrears barely three minutes later from their first corner of the game when Johnny Mullins' header was somehow scooped off the line by David Forde. Peter Thompson's follow-up shot was then blocked in an almighty scramble before the danger was finally averted.

Craig then cleared off the line from David Poole's effort, but the referee blew for a foul on David Forde as County began to press.
However Millwall soon took the sting out of the situation in perfect fashion. Schofield did well to block a crossfield pass, the ball fell to Hackett and his perfectly weighted throughball picked out Harris in a central position. Chopper strode forward before despatching a clinical finish to make it 3-0 with 36 minutes on the clock.

Harris had a great chance to complete his hat-trick three minutes later when he was sent tumbling in the area by the hapless Huntington.
The striker picked himself up, but sent his powerful spot-kick too close to keeper Fon Williams, who got his body fully behind the ball to deny Chopper his hat-trick - and Millwall a fourth goal.
Stockport boss Gary Ablett not surprisingly made a couple of changes at the start of the second period, bringing on Danny Pilkington and Oli Johnson.
No doubt responding to some straight talking from their manager, County certainly had more purpose about their play in a bid to try and claw their way back.

Michael Rose saw his low drive held by Forde and Johnson flicked a header over and then sent another straight at Forde as the home side tried to build up a head of steam.
Hackett, Schofield and Harris combined to set up Millwall's first chance of the second-half after 65 minutes, only for Morison to glance his header a yard over.
Morison, enjoying his best game for The Lions, produced a delightful combination of power and skill two minutes later, working his way into the box before selflessly squaring to Harris, who poked over the line for his hat-trick.

It took a stunning save at full stretch by Fon Williams to divert Morison's piledriver for a corner and deny the striker the goal his display deserved.
Morison was eventually replaced by Gary Alexander five minutes from the end - the third and final substitution made by Jackett.
And it was Alexander who nearly made it five deep in injury-time with a stinging 20-yard drive that the overworked Fon Williams parried at full stretch.
A fifth goal would have been no more than The Lions deserved for a five-star team display.

Stockport County: Fon Williams, Mullins, Rose, Bridcutt, Raynes, Vincent (Pilkington, 46mins), Tansey (Johnson, 46mins), Baker, Poole (Griffin, 71mins, Thompson, Huntington. Subs not used: Turnbull, Gerrard, Halls, Havern.

Girls Centre at The Den

The London FA is pleased to announce the launch of two new soccer centres in South London for girls aged 8 - 12 years.
The idea behind the centres is to offer girls the opportunity to take part in organised football sessions outside of school time, in a safe and friendly environment.
One of the aims of the sessions is to get more girls' playing football in the local area and we hope that by being linked in with two of the big local football clubs, Charlton Athletic & Millwall FC that it will help attract more girls.

We are hoping to be able to form small teams from these sessions and eventually enter them into a local league if there is enough interest.
We are pleased to have the funding and backing of the London Playing Fields Foundation, who have a very keen involvement in the development of female football in London.

The two sessions will take place on Saturdays starting on 31st October, the first running at London Marathon Sports Ground, Shooters Hill Road, Greenwich from 10-12noon, and will be run by Charlton Athletic and the second session will take place at The Millwall Community Scheme, The Den, Bolina Road from 12-1.30pm, and be run by Millwall FITC & the London FA CSC.

Both sessions will be run by qualified coaches, and will cost just £2 to attend. There will also be the opportunity to attend the senior women's team matches and meet the female players.
If you would like more information on these sessions please contact Emma Barnes, Women's & Girls FDO, South London,




Wardy returns to the Lions Den!

It's been a while since the mass exodus of Millwall players to our south London rivals palARSE, but today one of the prodigal sons returned... Defender Darren Ward has completed a move back to Millwall from his current club Wolves on an emergency 93-day loan.

Wardy, who will go straight into the squad for Saturday's League One match at Gillingham, is no stranger to The Den faithful.
Darren first arrived in SE16 during the 2001/2 season when former boss Mark McGhee splashed out £500,000 to secure his services from Watford.
During his first spell here he helped The Lions reach both the 2001/2 Play-Offs and 2004 FA Cup Final against Manchester United.
The 30-year-old centre-half also featured for Millwall during our UEFA Cup matches against Ferencvaros.

Darren made161 appearances for the club scoring four goals, and was also awarded the Player of the Year trophy for the 2003/4 season during which he was ever-present in the team.

He then moved to Crystal PalARSE and then Wolves in 2007, making 34 appearances for Mick McCarthy's side.
Darren also had a couple of loan spells at Watford and Charlton last season, but is relishing the prospect of coming back and playing his football at The Den once more.
He has been handed squad number 18 and is set to make his second 'debut' in the heart of Millwall's defence at Gillingham tomorrow.

Henry's back at Millwall

Lions manager Kenny Jackett has made his first move in the emergency transfer window by signing Reading winger James Henry on loan until 29th December.
James, 20, is no stranger to The Den having enjoyed a successful spell here in the latter part of the 2008/9 campaign, making 16 starts and scoring three goals for Jackett's side.
The skilful midfielder has been handed squad number 17 and will go straight into contention for a place in the starting line-up at Gillingham on Saturday.

Bristol Rovers 2 Millwall 0

John Marquis

A first-half penalty from Jeff Hughes coupled with a stunning 63rd-minute strike from Chris Lines sent Millwall sliding to their first League One defeat of the season at the Memorial Stadium.
Hughes slammed home the opener on 25 minutes from the penalty spot after Andy Frampton was penalised for a foul before Lines hit an absolute screamer to wrap up the points.
Yet again Lions boss Kenny Jackett had his hands tied in terms of his preferred starting XI, with midfielder Marc Laird joining Paul Robinson and Jason Price along with a plethora of other injured first-teamers on the sidelines.
In came new-signing Danny Schofield for his debut following his transfer deadline day move from Yeovil Town, whilst striker Ashley Grimes was handed a senior start for the first time since 3rd March 2009.
Teenagers Kiernan Hughes-Mason and John Marquis were due to be on duty for Scott Fitzgerald's U18s at QPR but found themselves named on the subs' bench at the Memorial Stadium instead.
Rovers, themselves fielding debutants in the shape of keeper Mikel Andersen and Mark Wright, had The Lions under pressure from the opening whistle, forcing four corners in the opening five minutes.
Having weathered the early storm, Millwall began to ask questions of the Gas defence themselves.
Frampton and Jimmy Abdou worked a half-chance for Gary Alexander, but his path to goal was blocked by Danny Coles.
Some great work by Schofield on the right saw the right winger wriggle past Aaron Lescott and send over an inch perfect cross for Grimes. Unfortunately the latter's header lacked power and was comfortably held by Andersen.
Abdou then floated a header from Schofield's free-kick as Millwall enjoyed their best spell of the opening half.
But back came Rovers with Darryl Duffy and then Lescott thwarted in quick succession by a great defensive block from Alexander and keeper David Forde respectively.
However, there was little Forde could do to prevent the opening goal on 25 minutes. Ali Fuseini's attempted clearance just outside the danger zone was blocked, Hughes picked up the ball and broke into the area before he was floored by Frampton.
Referee Jon Moss had no hesitation in pointing to the spot, sensibly brandished just a yellow card to Frampton - and Hughes did the rest with a fierce spot-kick into the top left hand corner to put Rovers 1-0 ahead.
The Lions, looking surprisingly edgy at times defensively, struggled to get any real attacking momentum going before the break either.
That fact was clearly not lost on manager Jackett, who introduced George Friend for the subdued Dave Martin, but then it was all change again when Alexander was forced off with a heel injury with the second half barely four minutes old.
On came 17-year-old frontman Marquis to partner Grimes up front. And within a couple of minutes of entering the fray, a great dummy by the sub played in Grimes, whose crisply struck effort was pushed away for a corner by Andersen at full stretch.
Marquis was again involved after 57 minutes when he met Dunne's deep cross, but was unable to direct his header on target.
At this stage, The Lions were playing with a new-found impetus and when Dunne's goalbound diving header from Schofield's delivery on 62 minutes was deflected for another corner it seemed odds-on that the next goal was going to be an equaliser for Jackett's side.
But Schofield's resulting corner was cleared, play quickly swung up the other end following good work by Wright and Hughes. Hughes picked the ball up, took a couple of touches and then let fly with an unstoppable 25-yarder into the top corner.
That second goal clearly knocked the stuffing out of a Millwall side who battled gamely, but were thereafter put under pressure by a Rovers outfit that always looked capable of adding to their tally.
It took a brave block by keeper Forde to deny Lescott as he raced clear on 80 minutes and then Hughes contrived to fire wide of an empty net from six yards with the goal at his mercy as Rovers pressed forward, albeit unsuccessfully, in a bid to increase their tally.
Despite finishing the game goal-less and point-less, there was one major positive to take out of the match - the performance of youngster Marquis who showed some nice touches, good awareness and didn't seem overawed by his perhaps unexpectedly early introduction to senior football.

Lions Pride... this time the shame is on West Ham!

Why do ALL news reports refer to the trouble on Tuesday night as, both sets of fans fighting instead of the West Ham scum element attacking Millwall fans?

Because Millwall are The FA and England’s scapegoat for everything that is bad about football. They don’t want to admit that the hooligan element of society are in every walk of life, from Aldershot to Man Utd.

Those who choose to believe all they read and hear in the media are lucky enough to not have to live with the difficulties and prejudices of being a Millwall fan. Hearing well educated men who should know better than to believe ALL they read in the tabloids commenting on the “Animal Millwall Fans” on Wednesday was the most surprising for me, considering we hadn’t done anything.

Now we all know that the media coverage of Tuesday night didn’t show anything that could tarnish the reputation of Millwall FC, and all night long the reports were of how badly the West Ham fans were, invading the pitch and threatening the Millwall players, but by the next day the media were desperate to try to turn the tables on us, saying that Carlton Cole was racially abused by our fans… the fact that he was already under investigation from the FA for making obscene gestures to the Millwall fans was conveniently not mentioned, nor the fact that our striker Jason Price was racially abused by West Ham fans. 

Big questions need to be raised…. Why weren’t the West Ham fans kept away from Upton Park station so that visiting fans could exit the station safely without being bombarded with bottles?

Why were Millwall fans directed down side streets with no police presence where gangs of West Ham fans were waiting to attack them with bottles and bricks?

Why were Millwall fans kept on trains for over an hour and then taken to stations two miles away from the ground and made to walk through the West Ham fans without a police escort?

Why was the Queens pub open when it has been purposely closed on our previous meetings?

Why were the West Ham pitch invaders just put back over the wall into the seats ready to come back over again and not arrested as they would have been at the Den?

Why did the Referee not stop the match, if not on the first pitch invasion when the players were threatened but at least the second time?


I’m sure there are many many more questions that need to asked, but I doubt we will get the answers we want… All I can say for certain is that if this trouble had happened at the Den… the FA & Police wouldn’t think twice about closing us down.

Jimmy Abdou has missed the last couple of games with a tendon strain that is deep in the hip region. He is not doing any outdoor training yet, just work in the gym, so it will be at least one week before he is able to start training.
Steve Morison's hamstring strain is still very sore and we will assess it further as the pain settles over the next few days. However, it is highly likely he will be out for a few weeks.
Zak Whitbread underwent surgery on Monday and that was completed without any complications, whilst Pat O' Connor and Danny Senda continue their long term rehab.


West Ham Ticket Update

West Ham United
Millwall have now sold their allocation of 2,300 tickets for next Tuesday's Carling Cup tie at Upton Park. The additional 800 tickets received by the club this week sold out on Tuesday before the Oldham game, and it now looks unlikely that the club will secure any more.
Lions MD Andy Ambler commented: "Of course I'm pleased with the extra 800 because the initial 1500 was never going to be enough.
I still firmly believe there is no reason why we should not have been given 3,000, which even then would probably not have satisfied the demand from our Season Ticket holders and Members.
I will still be making our views known in the strongest terms."

Tuesday team news

Lions boss Kenny Jackett is expected to name a strong side for the visit of Bournemouth in the first round of the Carling Cup at The Den tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).
Jason Price (dead leg) is the only player on duty at St Mary's at the weekend who is ruled out for price_-saintsthis evening's game.
The manager is still without five injured defenders, but Jack Smith made an impressive debut alongside Andy Frampton against The Saints and looks set for his first home start.
Bournemouth kicked-off their League Two campaign with an impressive 3-0 away win at Bury and are amongst the promotion favourites, so The Lions can expect a tough test if they are to record their first success of the season and secure a second round tie potentially against Premier League opposition.
Admission prices for this game are £10 adults, £5 U16s, Cold Blow Lane and West Upper tiers only.

We would like to advise supporters attending this game that tests on the new ticketing system are ongoing and therefore there will be 'paper ticket' admission. If you have purchase your ticket online or from the Millwall ticket office, you will need to bring your paper ticket issued to gain entry.



Millwall U18s 9  Oxford Utd U18s 0

Kiernan Hughes-Mason

Millwall's wonder boy Kiernan Hughes-Mason stepped off the subs bench to hammer home a superb hat-trick in just 21 second-half minutes as Millwall wrapped up their pre-season preparations in sensational style against Oxford United.
Livewire Hughes-Mason struck goals in the 57th, 70th and 88th minutes as Scott Fitzgerald's young charges ran riot against their opponents.
Ikenna Ofoche got the ball rolling on 22 minutes when he latched onto a long pass upfield from Phil Stevenson and then beat the keepr with a low drive.
Grant Ludford fired in Millwall's second three minutes later to hand The Lions a 2-0 advantage at the break.
Second-half sub John Marquis bagged a brace by registering in the 55th and 76th minutes, rounding the keeper for his first and nodding home his second after Chris Hegarty's initial effort had rebounded off the bar.
Hughes-Mason ensuredb that the goals kept flowing with his treble, whilst David Adedipe (82mins) and Connor French (84mins) also weighed in.
The goals have certainly been flowing for the young Lions during pre-season with 25 scored in their five games, and only four conceded.

Team: Drummond, McLaren, Fitzsimon, Janneh, Stevenson, Beckles, Adedipe, French, Gallacher, Ofoche, Ludford. Subs (all used): Farmer, Tevfik, Marquis, Hegarty, Hughes-Mason.


Southampton 1  Millwall 1

Jimmy Abdou's magnificent 65th-minute header ensured that honours ended up even as Millwall kicked-off the new campaign with a hard-fought draw at League One new-boys Southampton.
In an absorbing encounter, Abdou rose majestically to head home the leveller and cancel out Matt Paterson's 51st-minute opener for Saints.
The equaliser was certainly deserved, and also saved the blushes of Alan Dunne, who had seen his penalty saved by keeper Kelvin Davis just seconds earlier.
Boss Kenny Jackett handed league debuts to Jack Smith and Steve Morison, whilst Chris Hackett made his first senior league start since 28th December 2008 as The Lions went in search of their first win on the opening day of the season since August 2003.
With a little more composure in front of goal, that six-year wait would surely have been over as The Lions dominated long spells of this match on the south coast.
It was Hackett who provided a delicious delivery just two minutes in that Abdou scooped wide as Millwall registered their first attempt on goal.
The combination of Hackett and Dunne on the right caused all sorts of problems during the opening half, and at times the duo threatened to run Saints ragged with their penetrating breaks down the flank.
Debutant Morison showed a nice piece of skill on nine minutes, picking up Adam Bolder's pass, flicking the ball over his head to create space, only to be thwarted by keeper Davis as he was about to pull the trigger.
Davis twice dealt with deep, hanging Hackett deliveries as Millwall confidently settled into their stride.
But Alan Pardew's Saints successfully absorbed an opening 20-minute Millwall onslaught, and gradually began to get the measure of their opponents as the half wore on.
Infact it was only the athleticism of Lions keeper David Forde that prevented the home side from breaking the deadlock on 29 minutes.
There seemed little immediate danger when Bolder was hustled off the ball just inside his own half, but Morgan Schneiderlin had other ideas and with one audacious swing of the right boot, let fly with a lob from fully 45 yards that seemed destined for the net, only for Forde to somehow stretch his fingertips just enough to spectacularly tip his effort over.
From the resulting corner, defender Chris Perry saw his first-time volley flash a foot wide to the relief of the 2,242 Lions fans packed behind the goal.
Forde nearly turned from hero to zero two minutes later when his sliced kick was picked up by Schneiderlin, but this time the Southampton man's cheeky 35-yard chip sailed over the keeper's head and dropped a yard over the bar.
Some neat interplay between Scott Barron, Gary Alexander and Dave Martin provided a good opportunity for Morison just before the break, only for the striker to take one touch too many in front of goal and his resulting shot was blocked by a combination of Davis and Graeme Murty.
Within seconds of the restart Barron produced a powerful run through the heart of the home defence, but sent an angled 20-yard drive narrowly wide.
However within six minutes of the second period it was Pardew's men who had taken the lead courtesy of Paterson's clipped finish from close range, despite protests from the Millwall defence that he had been in an off-side position.
Lions boss Jackett responded by introducing Ali Fuseini and Jason Price for Bolder and Martin, and the duo added fresh impetus and ideas in exactly the way the manager would have liked.
Just seven minutes after their introduction, Price was sent sprawling in the area by Wayne Thomas, and referee Mick Russell had no choice but to award a spot-kick.
Right-back Dunne stepped up to take the penalty, but saw his low effort parried by Davis. Price was first to the loose ball, only to see his follow-up cleared off the line for a corner - and also get injured in the process.
With Price still off the field of play, Hackett swung over the corner and although Morison flicked on, Abdou lept high above a static home defence to send a looping header beyond the reach of Davis and into the back of the net.
Millwall were buzzing and produced a final 20 minutes of intense attacking play to match the opening period of the game.
Barron and Price combined well in the 71st-minute, with the latter's deft flick setting up Alexander on the edge of 18-yard box. Alexander controlled the ball and let fly with a stinging drive that Davis did well to hold.
Millwall did get the ball in the back of the net shortly after when some fine footwork by Morison created an opening for Alexander, who slotted home from close-range. However the effort was ruled out because the linesman had deemed Morison to have carried the ball out of play before feeding Alexander, although TV replays proved inconclusive.
At this stage Price was clearly struggling though, and made way for Neil Harris eight minutes from time.
Chopper's first couple of touches produced a corner - the first of four for Millwall in a frantic finale that so easily could have reaped a late winner.
As the fourth official held up the board to indicate three minutes of injury-time, so came the best - and last - real opportunity for Jackett's men to secure all three points.
Harris sprayed the ball out to Hackett on the right, he in turn sprinted forward and despatched a deep cross to the far post for Alexander. Unfortunately the angle was just too tight and Alexander's glancing header flew agonisingly wide of the target.

Jackett's boys are Raring to go!

Kenny Jackett
Over 2,200 Lions fans will be at St Mary's Stadium tomorrow as Millwall kick-off the new League One campaign against Southampton.
The Sky TV cameras will be there along with a bumper crowd on the south coast as Kenny Jackett's side aim to get their campaign off to a winning start.
Saints have endured a turbulent summer that has seen a new chairman, chief executive and manager join the club following their relegation from The Championship in May.
Yet the south coast outfit have sold a staggering 11,000 season tickets - some 2,000 more than when they were playing in a higher division.
However, Lions boss Kenny Jackett's only focus is what his men do on the pitch - and he can't wait to get the season started.
"The last six weeks has been about preparation, fitness and fine-tuning," he said, "Now we are getting down to business with the start of the new league season.
This is a game that we are all very much looking forward to; we will be in front of the TV cameras, have fantastic support following us and hopefully hit the ground running with a good, winning performance."
A full interview with Kenny Jackett is available on Lions Player. Click here to subscribe to our fantastic interactive site - at just 10 pence per day it's too good a deal to miss!

Millwall coach Richard Shaw insists that there will be no despondency at the club this season - despite just missing out on promotion to Scunthorpe in the League One Play-Off Final.
"You can come back fresh and raring to go one better or you can have a hangover - and hopefully there will be no hangover," he said.
Dartford v Millwall"It was a great day at Wembley but we want to go up directly this year. On the first day back in training everyone was buoyant and upbeat - it is easy to feel sorry for yourselves after the Play-Off defeat but it hasn't been like that.
We have enough senior players like Neil Harris and Adam Bolder to make sure that doesn't happen.
The squad have been excellent so far and the results, fitness, and performances have been good - which bodes well."
Indeed, former Lions defender Shaw reckons the talismanic Harris can spur his younger team-mates on to go one stage further this season, and added: "He is the one person who really knows how this club runs; he knows what the fans want, that they need to see passion, blood, and sweat. He appreciates that.
It is no good coming here and thinking you can get away with a below-par performance. If you watch Neil Harris play you see that he will run himself into the ground. That is why he is such a fans' favourite."

Welling 2  Millwall 3


Richard Shaw praised his side for their 'commitment and attitude' following Tuesday night's 3-2 pre-season win at Welling United.
This time last year Shaw took a Millwall XI to Tooting & Mitcham which resulted in a 2-0 defeat - and a bit of an ear-bashing from the coach afterwards.
Whilst goals from Ali Fuseini, Ashley Grimes and John Marquis secured victory for The Lions last night, it was the application of his men that pleased Shaw the most.
He said: "Our attitude at Tooting last year when we lost was truly disappointing, to put it mildly. I have no complaints at all about our display this time.
Without sounding disrespectful, we had so many chances that the game should have been out of sight by half-time.
Even though it was 1-1 at the break, I was quite satisfied at that stage; the boys were playing good football and worked really hard.
Ali Fuseini and Marc Laird set the example in midfield, Grimesy did well and so did Lewis Grabban.
Jack Smith played very well at centre half. We gave him an hour and then dragged him off because our centre halves are a bit of a protected species at the moment!
It 's wrong to single out individuals for praise really because it was a good performance from everyone.
You can have all the ability in the world, but there is more to being a footballer than that and instead of coming here and thinking it was just a matter of turning up, they showed good commitment, attitude and a real hunger.
They will certainly have done themselves no harm at all in front of the manager, who came along to watch."

Team: Sullivan, Bignot, Hegarty, Fitzsimons, Smith (Beckles, 60mins), Grabban, Fuseini, Laird, Marquis, Hughes-Mason, Grimes


Lionesses prove too much for WFC Reading


WFC Reading 2 Millwall Lionesses 4

Millwall Lionesses faced their toughest pre-season test to date as Reading made the Premier League newcomers battle all the way before securing victory.
The Lionesses broke the deadlock after 13 minutes when Leah Jones broke into the area, beat her marker and slipped the ball across to Lindsey Morgan who stroked home.
Having made four changes at half-time Millwall went further ahead four minutes after the break when sub Charlotte Gurr played a neat one-two with Morgan, cut the ball back for Ellie Stenning wand the latter slid home for Millwall's second.
On 57 minute Gurr was again involved in the build-up when she picked up the ball on halfway, out-ran the Reading midfield before laying the ball off on the edge of the area for the impressive Morgan to power home.
Reading, who had been constantly asking questions of the Millwall defence from the start, never gave up and scored twice in a minute midway through the second half.
Game on again, and with both teams going all out to score the next goal it could have gone either way.
But with two minutes remaining The Lionesses made the game safe when Ann-Marie Heatherson, playing right wing cut inside her marker and unleashed an unstoppable shot for 35 yards into the far corner of the net, giving the home keeper no chance.

Lionesses squad: Claire Lacey, Jo Woodgates, Dionne Lennon, Sinead Boyer, Megan McKeag, Lindsey Morgan, Carly Eagles, Harley Bennett, Leah Jones, Ellie Stenning, Lauren Phillips, Leanne Champ, Ann-Marie Heatherson, Charlotte Gurr, Becky Tweed, Eve Gilroy.


Farewell to Sads

Richard Sadlier

Millwall maintained their unbeaten pre-season run with a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough at The Den, but the real story was the appearance of Richard Sadlier for a ten-minute cameo in which he saw a penalty shout turned down.
On the return to action of the former striker, boss Kenny Jackett said: "I was pleased to honour the club's commitment to Richard and I thought he did very well considering he hasn't trained for this match as much as he would've liked.
He put himself about and didn't shirk a tackle. It's pleasing to see he hasn't lost any of his enthusiasm and love of the game.
Why he wasn't given a penalty I've no idea. Not even Gareth Southgate would've begrudged a decision like that. But he can be pleased and hopefully he saw it as a fitting send off."

Smith signs on

Jack Smith has today penned a short-term contract that keeps the defender at Millwall until January 2010.
The 25-year-old is well known by Lions boss Kenny Jackett, having worked with him during his days as a youngster at Watford.
Speaking to the website Jack said: "I was at Swindon, but they didn't renew my contract so spoke to Kenny just to see if it was alright to do a bit of training and see where the land lay.
It was a bit of a relief when he said yes, because there are so many players at the moment who don't have a club and are not even getting the opportunity to train with anyone.
I've been training here for 2-3 weeks and went on the pre-season tour to Ireland which was good because it helps you be a bit more involved and get to know the lads.
Although I am new here, I have known Adam Bolder for years because he used to play with my brother at Derby County, so that's been a help.
I'm really looking forward to my time here. It's down to me to force my way into the team, play well, help the team and hopefully earn myself a longer contract.
But my first goal is to push into the team and take it from there."

Price returns to the Den


The formalities of Jason Price's move to Millwall on a one-year contract are now complete.
Jason, 32, was a big hit during his loan spell at The Den from Doncaster Rovers towards the end of last season, but sadly had to miss out on the Play-Off Final with a hamstring injury.

Jason told the official site...

"It's great to be back.

I was here for two months at the end of last season and really enjoyed my time here, although missing out on the second Play-Off game at Leeds and then Wembley with injury was possibly the biggest disappointment of my career.

I knew Kenny was interested in signing me and he phoned last week to have a chat.
He told me the expectations here and they really are quite high, but I am happy with that.
It is going to be a tough division to get out of with some strong teams - the three that have come down, Huddersfield, plus a couple of the teams up north are going for it and buying big. But we have a good squad and good fans.
Even if you spend big money, it can go wrong. Look at Huddersfield last year and Leeds too, they have been hanging about in the Play-Offs and keep losing them.
You need a good mix of players, and that is exactly what we have got here."
