Special Millwall welcome
Members of the 4th Regiment of the Royal Military Police unit, based in Tulse Hill, were at The Den on Sunday as special guests of the club.
Lions fan Corporal Wayne O'Connor from the 253 Provost Company 4th Regiment got in touch with us recently because a number of his unit are returning to Afghanistan early in 2013.
As a result, we were delighted to welcome Wayne and members of his unit to the Championship fixture against Leeds United.
Prior to kick-out they spent time chatting to fans, and were actively encouraging supporters to take advantage of the free health check on offer along with the opportunity to chat to representatives of Prostate Cancer UK at the Blue Bus.
As the ground began to fill up with supporters, David Annand, a prostate cancer sufferer, walked around the perimeter of the pitch as part of his bid to highlight just how common prostate cancer is. David's full story can be found on his webpage here www.justgiving.com/david500miles
They took their seats and enjoyed watching Kenny Jackett's men beat Leeds United before meeting up with skipper Danny Shittu and other members of the first team squad afterwards to round off a great day.
With kick-off fast approaching, Lions CEO Andy Ambler received a plaque on behalf of Millwall FC from the 4th Regiment, who then helped form a guard of honour along with youngsters from Fisher U11s to welcome the teams out on the pitch.
