Joe Martin on joining Millwall

25 June 2015

Defender excited at Lions move

Joe Martin met his new team-mates for the first time on Thursday morning as the Millwall squad reported back for pre-season training.

Of course, the sun was out to greet them as the running began, but it was no more than Joe had expected.

"It's always the same," he said. "First day of pre-season and first game of the season it always seems to be boiling hot weather! But that doesn't really bother me, the work has to be done and I'm looking forward to getting back to full match fitness as quickly as possible and for the season to start.

"There was initially interest in me from Millwall two years ago and I was tempted then. But Gillingham had just been promoted and I ended up staying there. This time, however, when I heard that the opportunity might be there for me again I was really excited and there was no way I was going miss it this time.

"For me Millwall is a big club with passionate fans and with Neil Harris in charge there is clearly a buzz about the place.

"I already know John Marquis and Andy Frampton, the new Development Coach, and I'm looking forward to the trip to Portugal which will be a good opportunity to get to know people and for us to bond as a group."
