Fan on the board issues statement
After a debate lasting well over two hours, the Lewisham Cabinet voted in favour of giving the Council CPO powers.
Six voted for, one voted against and one abstained.
Defend Our Den founder and Millwall fan on the board, Peter Garston, said: "We are terribly disappointed with the result. But we're heartened by the support from our MPs, the Lewisham Labour Group and Councillor Joe Dromey, who voted against it.
"We also appreciated Councillor Brenda Dacres, who spoke out against the CPOs at the meeting along with resident Willow Winston.
"There is no change for the club as this will be a long process.
"But we will fight on for the club, the Millwall Community Trust and the fans."
