Millwall chairman Berylson excited ahead of Play-Off Final

28 May 2016

John wishes good luck to the management and players

John Berylson has expressed his excitement ahead of Millwall's League One Play-Off Final against Barnsley.

The Lions go head-to-head with The Tykes for a place in the Championship next season after the two sides overcame Bradford City and Walsall in their respective Semi-Finals earlier this month.

Sunday's showpiece is the fourth time that Millwall will play at Wembley since the chairman took control of the club and Berylson hopes past experiences will work in The Lions' favour against Barnsley.

"I'm very excited to be going back to the national stadium again," he told

"It has been a fantastic season, regardless of Sunday's outcome, and Neil Harris, his coaching team and the players deserve enormous credit for the success they have achieved already.

"Neil and four of the players - Tony Craig, Steve Morison, David Forde and Jimmy Abdou - were all part of the squad which achieved promotion against Swindon in 2010, and I'm sure their experience of that day will have been invaluable for some of the youngsters this week. I think it will be especially important on Sunday itself, in the dressing room and on the pitch, and hopefully we can use that for our benefit.

"I'm pleased that our wonderful fans have another opportunity to cheer on their team at Wembley. The support the players have had all season has been brilliant, especially so against Bradford in the Semi-Finals, when it was extraordinary. Their backing could make a big difference on Sunday and I hope the supporters can enjoy themselves."
