MILLWALL have confirmed they will play Stevenage in a friendly at the Lamex Stadium on July 25.

It is the second year in a row the sides meet in pre-season after last year’s 2-2 draw and comes a week after the trip to AFC Wimbledon.

There will be an added air of anticipation this year with former Lions striker Teddy Sheringham in the Stevenage dugout.

The former England striker took on his first managerial role when he was appointed Stevenage boss last week having been West Ham’s attacking coach under Sam Allardyce.

Sheringham, 49, held Millwall’s all-time scoring record until it was broken by Neil Harris in 2009.

Stevenage finished sixth in League Two last season but were beaten by Southend in the play-offs.

Kick-off will be at 3pm and Millwall have also confirmed that tickets will only be available on the gate.

      @Simon Donnelly:
      Teddy done nothing wrong at our club. Came up through the ranks , was a major part of the best Millwall team ever , we got relegated 2 years after top flight football , he stuck around and scored 38 goals the next season then furthered his career.
      For me , that record and his career deserve nothing but total and utter respect.

        @Block 8: In the season after Teddy left for Forest I was lucky enough to be able to get to reserve games at the old Den. On several occasions Sheringham was there on the terrace watching the reserve team. Despite everything that followed, I believe he has a real affinity for Millwall. He deserves respect for what he did for Millwall

        @Block 8: all I'm saying block 8, there was a time teddy said if you cut him open he would have blue blood... Then when we wanted him back as a player/coach he opted for west ham, and then said how he grew up supporting them. The frazzled is full of s**t in my eyes. Trust me I loved him to bits in till that come out of his mouth.

    I hope Teddy gets the proper respect he deserves. Despite all the Judas nonsense from a minority, he's still the greatest player to have ever worn a Millwall shirt and did us proud through some great years.

          @scottwall: we wouldn't have got promo to the then top flight with out Teddy you can't expect a player to turn down the chance to climb the career ladder and he turned up for Christmas dinner with the legends. The answer to your question, Scottwall is serial dislikers 😉

      @Micky Lions: incorrect statement I'm afraid, millwall's greatest
      player was Charlie Hurley voted Millwall player of the century. Nobody has ever come near him, he
      Went on to become sunderland's greatest player afterwards.

        Quite right Telboy! You lot on here going on bout the younger crowd not understanding because they didn't see him play, well how about you lot that are saying Teddy was our best ever? I'm guessing you never saw Hurley then, or Cripps. Both miles ahead of Teddy as players. Stepney as well! He won a European Cup did he not? Even Hurley who was in the same team was a much better footballer! Then there's Timmy Cahill as well.

        You lot should think before you slate people on here. Teddy got what was coming to him because of the way he conducts himself off the pitch i.e. claiming to be a boyhood fan of every single team he's ever signed for! No one is slating him based on his Millwall career! Too many high-and-mighty's on here for my liking. We don't owe him any respect. We're the fans. We pay their wages. He did his job and he did it well while he was here, but we're still here when he's gone, and if we choose to give him stick then he can just deal with it. We can't all lick his a*** just because you lot (who's first ever games was probably when he was peaking for us) tell us to!

          @alpha_dogg: I dont think people are licking his a***, just saying they thought he was a great player for us. Its all about opinions, Cahill was great also but played in a different position to Sheringham so you cant say he was better and he won a European cup did he not?

          @alpha_dogg:
          Ok look - I saw Charlie Hurley and Harry. They were both excellent players in their different ways. I also saw Keith Weller and Jackie Harmer (who had more natural talent than any of the others. But the idea that they were all "miles better as players" than Teddy is obvious nonsense. There's a school of thought on here that thinks being prepared to try and run through a brick wall makes somebody a great player. It doesn't - never has done and never will.

          OTOH Alex Stepney was the best goalie we have ever had and probably the second best I've ever seen down here - I remember seeing Shilton at the old Den in a Cup game and he was unbelievable, saving them single handed - the git

            @The Humble One: Was at that game also and Shilton was outstanding,we were jumping up to celebrate a goal and this hand would appear from no where and save it. He took some stick as well. Firstly with Shilton is a w. anker which he turned to the CBL and clapped then a chorus of Shilton f. ucks his mother, rightly so he took offence and with his hands gestured to us to leave it out but it was all done with respect just the Millwall way.

            @The Humble One: for anyone to say Cripps was better than Sheringham is delusional, I'm still laughing. Weller was my boyhood hero, and teddy was different class. There are many great players over the years, and all deserve our respect and support

            @The Humble One: Teddy was the best and first of the new breed of footballer for us.... Most of the others were excellent in their prime but let's have it right, the fitness levels, tactical and positioning of the new breed are totally different.... George Best for example would be run off the park by Ronaldo or Bale.... Quality in his era but would never make the United first team nowadays
