Neil Harris pays fulsome tribute to Millwall skipper TC

29 July 2016

'His desire to win makes him a special character and player' says Chopper

Neil Harris has paid a glowing tribute to captain Tony Craig on the eve of the captain's Testimonial against Brentford at The Den (3pm).

Millwall manager Chopper is in a unique position of having played in the same team as tough-tackling defender TC for many years, and is now his former team-mate's boss!

The fact that TC will be leading the team out on Saturday against his former club Brentford, with whom he played a key role in helping The Bees clinch promotion in 2013/14, makes the occasion that bit more special.

"Walking out onto the pitch between two sets of players from clubs which Tony knows so well will be an extremely special and humbling experience for him and his family," said Chopper.

"I played with him for about eight seasons out of the 10 and a half which he's done at Millwall and I have not appeared alongside many better pro’s or more dedicated players than him. 

"Tony's preparation for a game is always meticulous and his desire to win is probably what makes him a special character and indeed a player, which is what you have to be in order to play for Millwall over the long-term.

"It is not something which I was born with, but mine grew as I played more games for this club whereas Tony, as a fan and as an Academy player here, had it right from a young age. He is born and bred Millwall so Saturday really will be a fitting occasion for him."

Tickets for Saturday's game are on sale up until kick-off priced at £10 adults, £5 over 60s and £5 U16s with Executive seats priced at £25 for adults and £20 for juniors.
