Fantastic response to Association plan
There has been a phenomenal response following our announcement that Lions legend Billy Neil is setting up a 'Millwall Ex-Players' Association' with a view to bringing more former Lions stars into regular contact with the club.
Billy started out with a list of around 150 names and phone numbers to make contact with former Den favourites, but has been staggered at the number of ex-players, ranging from youth team players to full internationals, who have got in touch from as far a field as Canada, South Africa and Australia expressing an interest.
Billy said: "The response has been fantastic; really positive. Our initial plan is that each member will get a tie, and we'll also host an annual dinner. We will also hope to be getting more ex-players down to The Den every matchday to meet the fans and reminisce about old times."
Any former players interested in finding out more about the Millwall Ex-Players' Association should contact Billy Neil via firstname.lastname@example.org
