Millwall fans will see new signings at Bromley

MILLWALL supporters should get their first glimpses of the club’s new signings in the first re-season friendly this summer against Bromley on Saturday week.

David Worrall, Gregg Wylde and Shaun Hutchinson (pictured) met their new team-mates last Friday when the squad came back in for the first day of pre-season training.

The squad leave for Portugal on Thursday before returning to Calmont Road on Friday week to prepare for the fixture against the National League side at Hayes Lane.

Harris intends to give as many players as possible some action against Bromley and Dartford, with more players likely to see 90 minutes against Crawley Town.

Harris has also warned his squad that every player is fighting for their place in the starting XI for the first League One game of the season against Oldham on August 6.

“Not a single player is guaranteed a place in the starting XI at the moment,” Harris stressed. “I’ve got a squad of probably 19 first-team players and I’ve got two or three youngsters who could step into the first team this year, either in and out or regularly, like some of the boys did last year.

“The goalkeeping position will be between all fit goalkeepers, everyone will be considered for a position in the team or on the bench.”

Meanwhile, Harris expects defender Shaun Cummings to be in contention for a first-team return in August as he continues his recovery from an operation on knee cartilage damage last February.

The only other current absentee is Christian Mbulu, who made one appearance in Millwall’s first-team matchday squad last season. The centre-back is sidelined with a knee injury and won't return to competitive action until October or November.
