Harris signs new Millwall contract

New deals for management trio...

26 June 2018

Millwall Football Club is delighted to announce that Lions boss Neil Harris has signed a new long-term contract at The Den.

Harris, who has been in charge since March 2015, has put pen-to-paper on a fresh deal to extend his near three-and-a-half year tenure at the club into the 2018/19 campaign and beyond.

The 40-year-old became the interim boss towards the end of the 2015/16 season and nearly completed the impossible job of keeping Millwall in The Championship, but ran out of games as the club dropped into League One.

The former striker was confirmed as the permanent manager at the end of that campaign and went on to steer The Lions to the League One Play-Off Final in 2016/17, unfortunately losing out to Barnsley at Wembley Stadium.

That defeat did not deter Harris and his squad, however, as the club returned to Wembley the following year, defeating Bradford City 1-0 in the Play-Off Final, winning promotion back to the second tier after just two years away.

Harris' first full season of Championship management nearly ended with a third successive Play-Off campaign, but after an incredible year that included a 17-match unbeaten run and a record-equalling six consecutive away League victories, two defeats to Fulham and Middlesbrough ensured The Lions fell just short.

Along with Harris, assistant manager David Livermore and first team coach Adam Barrett have also signed deals to remain at the club.

Furthermore, goalkeeping coach Lee Turner joined Millwall for the first day of pre-season training at Calmont Road on Monday 25th June.
