MILLWALL have come to the end of their five-day training camp in Portugal and are preparing to leave for London.

The squad will meet again on Monday morning at Calmont Road to get ready for the friendly against Bromley the following evening.

And midfielder Ed Upson, who scored two goals in 36 games last season, said the trip was a thorough success.

“There is a good atmosphere around the group with a lot of camaraderie at the moment.

“The rustiness has gone and everyone is looking really good and sharp.

“We have had long meetings and spoken about our aim for the season. We’re really excited.”

The 25-year-old former Yeovil Town player will be one of the more experienced members of Millwall's midfield next season after the departures of the likes of Richard Chaplow and Nicky Bailey.

And he is determined to be an example to Ben Thompson, 19, and 21-year-old Jack Powell, both of whom were part of Neil Harris’ first-team squad towards the end of last season.

Speaking to the club’s website he said: “It’s just another part of football and another responsibility to take on and look after the younger lads to make sure everyone is doing it right.”

    Really hoping upson can step and be a big player for us this season and seasons to come, looks like he's got it in he's locker to be a top player so I'm looking forward to seeing him prove it. And a new centre forward would come in handy as well Mr Chairman !

    Hope upson does as well as I think he could do, not sure about him and Williams in the same side though, on a slightly different note I'm bored of hearing and I'm going back to as far as jackett here everyone saying the camp unity is good when if rumours are true it's been bad for years. Hopefully the cancer setters such as trots and his mates who stayed on have all f,off strong disciplined management is the only way we will do well this season, bit of Rioch but not as far
