Manager Neil Harris has confirmed that 31 year old Tony Craig will continue to wear the captain’s armband for the 2016/17 campaign.

With our skipper missing a major part of last season having had to undergo surgery on his knee in November, Steve Morison stepped in as captain but Craig was the man to lead us out at Wembley.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the Bromley friendly, Harris explained that he saw no reason to change this year.

‘There is no change – Tony is club captain and has been club captain since coming back. When he was out for a sustained period then Steve took over. I`m really lucky to have two top senior pros who lead by example. They are very well-respected in the dressing room and good mates. It is a top pairing for me. We`ve got a mixture of young lads and people like David Forde, Jimmy Abdou and Shaun Williams who are all experienced players either approaching 30 or over.’

Harris went on to say.

‘They are really good characters and have all captained Millwall at some time. That`s what you need in the dressing room.’

Having confirmed the group that would be travelling to Bromley, Harris also answered questions on those that would be missing from the game.

Beginning with Joe Martin, he said.

‘We`re just being really careful with Joe. He has been on the treadmill and we expect him to take part in some minutes towards the end of the friendly schedule – probably Brentford and Welling. We`re looking later on for Shaun Cummings. He`s not likely to be joining in on the training ground until August.’
