Millwall to host special event on EFL Day of Action

Clubs across the country to highlight community work

14 April 2021

Lions legend Paul Robinson will lead a coaching session for the Millwall Romans at The Den to mark the EFL's annual Day of Action.

Robinson, now the club's U23 Assistant Manager, will take the LGBTQ side through various footballing drills, as well as discussing coaching techniques and styles.

Rick Parry, Chair of the EFL, said: “The way that our Clubs and CCOs have adapted to deal with the challenges of the past year is remarkable, responding to the growing needs of their communities affected by the pandemic while also continuing to deliver critical life-changing programmes in towns and cities across England and Wales to people who need it most.

“The EFL Day of Action gives us a platform to step back and take the time to acknowledge the hard work that our Clubs are doing in their communities every day of the year."

During the pandemic, the club, alongside the Millwall Community Trust, have continued to offer various forms of support and programmes for those in need, from shopping for the elderly to providing free meals for school children.

Millwall supporters such as Kelly Webster, Charlie Harris, Sean Ash and Scott Johnson have all showed tremendous spirit and determination to help those struggling in such tough times. 

“Community work delivered by football Clubs is without a doubt one of the key mechanisms in helping to address important societal issues with the aim of building stronger, healthier, active, more cohesive communities," continued Parry.

“It’s great to see all 72 EFL Clubs, players, managers, staff and participants come together to highlight the power of football in uniting people and working for the greater good.”
