Play up The Lions - classic British Pathe film clip

14 October 2014

Watch some Millwall training from 1938

We have stumbled across some excellent footage of the Millwall players training at The Den in 1938.

This Lions side made history the previous season by becoming the first Third Division outfit to reach the FA Cup Semi-Finals.

The footage shown below, includes the likes of England international JR Smith, 'Top Hat' Hedley and Chisel Forsyth. Under manager Charles Hewitt they went on to win the Division Three (South) championship during that campaign.

Had the Second World War not intervened, many fans from that era believe they would have gone on to reach the top flight in due course. Play up The Lions!
