Fielding: "I'm delighted to be here at Millwall"

Goalkeeper gives his first interview after signing for The Lions

28 June 2019

Frank Fielding has spoken of his delight to complete his move to Millwall after signing for the club on Thursday afternoon.

The former Bristol City, Derby County and England Under 21 stopper has emphasised his joy to complete the deal.

"I'm delighted to be here now," Fielding told millwallfc.co.uk.

"It took a while to get over the line, but now it's done, and I'm delighted to be getting started here.

"The manager set his stall out from the beginning just after the end of last season, showing his interest in me straight away. Whilst it took a while to get done, these things happen and now it's great to be here at Millwall."

At 31, Fielding possesses both valuable experience and time on his side as a goalkeeper and is looking to represent an immediate improvement to the squad.

"I'll look to pass on my experience any way I can.

"I want to ensure we are better, I want to come in and improve us as a team, and make sure we get the wins on the board.

"I'll always look to share my experience and ideas with the squad and I'm still learning myself, so I'm definitely looking forward to a new chapter here."

Fielding - who will wear the number one shirt at The Den - outlines how he is a team player, and will look to be a positive influence in the dressing room.

"As I always say when I am asked, I think I'm coming into my peak years as a goalkeeper now.

"I'm always looking to improve, to try and get better, and I think this is the place for me to do that.

"I don't look at myself in particular on the pitch though - I'm not selfish - I look at the team getting results on a Saturday, Tuesday or whenever we play."

The goalkeeper claims settling into his new surroundings in SE16 will be helped by his close acquaintance with former Bristol City team-mate Alex Pearce, and says he is fully focused on building from last term.

"I know Alex Pearce from when he came to Bristol City some time ago, he's an unbelievable character with bags of experience.

"That will help me settle in quickly, and I just want us to go for an improvement on last season, and for us to climb our way up the table."
