THE funeral of Millwall legend Barry Kitchener, who died last month after a short battle with throat cancer, took place at a church in Norfolk yesterday.

A host of former Lions players, including Brian Horne, Alan McLeary, Barry Rowan, Paul Roberts, Alan Dorney, Bryan King, Dave Martin, George Jacks, John Seasman, Terry Brisley, Jon Moore, Dave Mehmet and Roger Cross, were in attendance at St Andrews' Church.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett, chief executive Andy Ambler and former chairman Jeff Burnige also paid their respects.

Kitchener's life and career is expected to be formally commemorated in the renaming of The Den's West Stand from the start of next season.
