Sad passing of Lions legend

Millwall FC were saddened to hear of the passing of former player Dave Jones on Thursday 12th December.

Dave was at The Den between 1959 and 1964 and scored over 60 goals in his first three seasons with The Lions, winning a Fourth Division Championship medal in 1961/62.

At only 24-years-old, he was the scorer of 71 League goals, becoming only the third Millwall player to pass the 70-mark in League matches.

In total, Dave made 179 appearances for The Lions, scoring 75 goals.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.
