Bryan King and Jamie Philpot on Lions Live

24 March 2016

The King is alive, long live the King!

What do King Henry VII and Lions goalkeeping legend Bryan King have in common? OK, that was blindingly obvious - neither have ever scored for Millwall.

But the more academically minded out there may have spotted another compelling commonality between the two - both have spawned a host of pretenders to their respective titles.

Bryan is regarded by many as Millwall's greatest ever keeper. From 1967 to 1976 he was the last line of defence in an imposing line-up which included the likes of Barry Kitchener and Harry Cripps. And like England's first Tudor monarch, Bryan has seen off a disconcerting number of young upstarts eager to claim his title. With 340 Millwall appearances under his belt, Bryan won't be relinquishing his title any time soon.

The legendary keeper will be in the Lions Live studio this evening to look back on an eventful and occasionally, glittering, career.

Second on tonight's bill is a promising youngster currently making inroads into the Millwall first-team. Jamie Philpot is representative of the exciting young crop of talent streaming out of the Millwall Academy and has already cut his teeth at senior level. With two senior appearances and a goal to his name, Jamie will talking about his future in a resurgent Millwall line-up.

With goalkeepers still very much on the agenda, collectors of Millwall memorabilia will be keen to get their hands on this weeks competition prize. Jordan Archer's shirt from Millwall's 3-0 drubbing of Blackpool will be up for grabs so have your phone at the ready.
