Introducing the squad

Posted 30th May 2016 at 06:35 pm

Towering centre-half Byron Webster signed in the summer of 2014 after his contract at Yeovil Town came to an end.

The Yorkshire-born defender opted to join The Lions after turning down a new contract with The Glovers, who were relegated to League One at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

Webster, who has played for clubs including York City, Hereford United, Doncaster, Northampton and Czech outfit FK Banik Most, made 97 appearances in total for Yeovil, scoring eight goals.

Byron's first start for The Lions came against Wycombe Wanderers in the Capital One Cup in August 2014. The defender went on to make 13 further appearances for Millwall in 2014/15 before returning to Huish Park on loan in February 2015, where he featured 14 times.

The 2015/16 saw Byron really establish himself as a pivotal part of a back four unit that kept 21 clean sheets during the course of a campaign in which his performances went from strength to strength.

Unfortunately the season ended on a bitterly disappointing note for the 29-year-old, who got injured in the Play-Off Final warm-up 25 minutes before kick-off and thus missed out on an opportunity to play at Wembley.

Just 24 hours later, however, a one-year extension clause in his contract was activated and Byron will be looking forward to playing a key part for Millwall during the 2016/17 season.
