Ben Thompson - Play the game, not the occasion

27 May 2016

Millwall midfielder fully focused on the job ahead

Millwall's Young Player of the Year, Ben Thompson, really is living the dream.

Not so long ago, Ben, like the rest of his family, was cheering The Lions on from the stands at The Den. This Sunday, however, he will be representing his boyhood club in a Wembley Final.

"Everyone's excited," he admitted, "but you can't let that get to you. It's not a day out, there's a job to be done.

"There's a lot at stake for the club and everyone connected with Millwall. I've sorted all the family's tickets and now I'm just focusing on the game.

"We know the threat Barnsley pose but we'll go out and play our normal game and I'm confident we'll be fine. Once the whistle goes all the build up and the occasion will be forgotten and the hard work and preparation we've done will see us through."
