Tamika Mkandawire

Born: 28/05/1983

Position: Defender/Midfielder

Squad number: 17

Profile: Born in Mzuzu, in Malawi, Mkandawire has impressed the Millwall faithful since joining from Leyton Orient in 2010. He came through the West Bromwich Albion youth ranks only to be released in 2004 after the Baggies won promotion to the Premier League.

Following an unsuccessful trial at New England Revolution in the United States, Mkandawire signed for Hereford United. He was an integral part of the Hereford side that won promotion to the Football League in 2005-06 and was subsequently named their Player of the Year.

He signed for Leyton Orient in 2007, where he went on to make 114 appearances and score 14 goals.

After signing for the Lions, Mkandawire was transformed into a defensive midfielder and in his inaugural season at the club, he was voted Player of the Year.

His second campaign at The Den was fraught with injury and he made only 13 appearances in the league.

He was, however, named the PFA's Player in the Community at the 2012 Football League awards, which recognised his outstanding charity work.

Did you know: In a bid to keep Mkandawire, both Hereford and Leyton Orient were prepared to make him their highest-ever paid player.
