Former player and now Development and First Team coach Andy Frampton has said he’s delighted to return to the club in a new capacity.

Following his appointment to our backroom staff, Frampton said he was ‘over the moon’ to be back with us after making over 100 appearances for the club back between the summer of 2007 and 2011.

Speaking to the official site after being forced to hang up his boots following an injury hit spell with AFC Wimbledon, the 35 year old said he was desperate to remain in the game so to begin his life properly as a coach with us is fantastic for him.

‘I’m over the moon that I have the opportunity to get into coaching, but certainly to be back at Millwall as well. It’s a real positive thing for me. Hopefully my experiences at the club, which range from being pretty poor to very good, means I know what it takes to put on a Millwall shirt. Hopefully that will reflect in the way I coach the lads because I can give them an account of what it takes.’

Having had a 15 year career that saw him take in well over 350 games, he says he can’t wait to get started alongside former colleague Neil Harris.

‘It’s very exciting. Neil did a great job at the end of last season, but unfortunately it wasn’t quite enough to keep Millwall in the Championship. The opportunity to work with Neil this forthcoming season is something that excites me greatly. It certainly looks like he is building a good team to take the club forward into the future.’
