Important message put across
As part of Millwall U18s professional development, the boys travelled to central London to visit the RNLI's busiest lifeboat station on Monday afternoon.
The aim of the visit was to highlight the fantastic work that the RNLI does saving lives and protecting people from the dangers of the Thames.
The boys spoke with on duty officers and were given a tour of the site, as well as seeing a demonstration of the boats used to save lives.
The message put across to all was that team-work, communication and trust are fundamental to the smooth running of the station.
Millwall's scholars place these values as a priority on their own development and it is no coincidence that, as a squad, a very successful start to the season has been built upon these values.
Dave Livermore U18s coach said: "From this visit our boys can appreciate even more the vital role communication and team-work play in creating a successful team, as well as being in awe of the commitment and bravery shown by mostly volunteers at the lifeboat station.
It's a very different perspective on what they do and hopefully they will become better people for the visit."
