Millwall Dockers' Day 2017

15 March 2017

Players from The Lions' historic unbeaten run to feature this weekend...

Millwall Football Club will celebrate its annual Dockers' Day when Bury visit The Den in Sky Bet League One this Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

The occasion, which highlights the club's historical links with the Dockworkers that formed a large part of The Lions' support in years gone by, will see members of Millwall's record-breaking 59-home game unbeaten run feature by the Blue Bus and on the pitch pre-match.

The incredible achievement, which began with a 2-2 draw against Torquay United on 24th August 1964 and came to an end on 14th January 1967 courtesy of a 2-1 defeat by Plymouth Argyle, saw names such as Hugh Curran, Joe Broadfoot and Terry Brisley feature regularly.

They will be joined on the day by more characters from that run, with Terry McQuade, Jimmy Whitehouse, Ray Gough, Tommy Wilson, Ronnie Howells, George Jacks, Ken Jones, Lawrie Leslie, Alan Welsh, Bobby Hunt, Bill McCullough, Dave Armstrong and Bryan Snowdon set to appear.

Lions fans will have an opportunity to meet their heroes by the Blue Bus from 2pm, with the ex-players then making their way on to the pitch at 2.30pm, where they will be presented with medals.

Die-hard Millwall supporter Colin Welch will be sponsoring the exclusive Dockers' Day T-shirts which the players will wear in the warm-up and sign before they are given to Junior Lions in the stadium.
