Ed can't wait for Den debut

13 February 2014

Midfielder Upson features in Saturday's matchday programme

Deadline day midfield signing Ed Upson believes he is already beginning to feel at home in his new surroundings at the club.

The 24-year-old arrived from Yeovil Town at the end of last month, and as part of that deal was forced to sit out Tuesday's game at Huish Park three days after he made his Lions debut against Burnley.

And Ed, speaking at length in Saturday's edition of The Lion, is enjoying life at The Den.

"At times it can be tough moving to a new club because you see a whole load of new faces, meet a new manager and are introduced to people you have never met before, but it has been so easy for me to come to Millwall," he said.

"The lads have been really welcoming, as has the manager and his staff, and they have made it simple to settle down at the club. I knew a few of the lads before, and that has helped.

"From Yeovil it is a massive step up for me. Millwall are a big team, a famous name, and have passionate fans. It was a pleasure to play for Yeovil for so many years and to achieve so much there that was completely unexpected. But I'm always looking to progress, and this is the next step for me. It has been a fun couple of weeks and I'm really enjoying myself.

"Making my debut was a proud moment, and I can't wait to play my first game for Millwall at The Den. It was a shame I couldn't play (against Yeovil) because I would have loved to be involved. I enjoyed the game, but it was stressful watching it to be honest.

"I'm excited to get going again and looking forward to my home debut, whenever that may be. I will give it my all, and I probably owe the fans a goal or two after the one on the opening day of the season. But most importantly I want to get out there and show those who weren't at Burnley, or who didn't see me play for Yeovil, what I can do as quickly as possible."

Saturday's edition of The Lion contains much more from Ed, including the impact Ian Holloway had on his decision to join Millwall, how it will take time for he and his team-mates to produce their best football and his excitement about moving to London.
