"It's one of the best days I've experienced," says Shane Ferguson

Where does Wembley win rank on winger's list of achievements?

25 May 2017

Shane Ferguson's bucket-list has been steadily shrinking since he signed his first professional contract almost a decade ago.

The Millwall and Northern Ireland winger was given his first taste of international football at just 19-years old and made his a Premier League debut for Newcastle less than a year later. 
 
So where does helping Millwall gain promotion to the Championship rank on his list of achievements?
   
"It's definitely one of the best days I have experienced as a footballer," he told millwallfc.co.uk
 
"If you saw the scenes in the changing rooms at Wembley you would know what it means to all the lads to earn promotion.
 
"It was a long, long season and it makes it all worthwhile when you're standing there on the podium. Everyone has contributed, the players, management and staff and everyone can celebrate."
 
"The Championship is where you want to play. When I first came to the club I knew that is was where we all wanted to be and it's just a fantastic achievement to turn it into a reality.
 
"I'm going to have a lot of fun with my friends and family during the break and then we will all come back and focus on another successful season."
