With a fantastic 2015/16 campaign under his belt, only ending on a low point with a suspension keeping him out of the Play Off games and Millwall’s Wembley slip up, right back Mahlon Romeo has said he’s relishing the pre season return now with hopes of seeing Millwall go one step further next season.

The 20 year old had a small extended summer this season as he had international action for Antigua & Barbuda against Puerto Rico and Grenada his month, and with his feet up now, he told the official site that he couldn’t wait for the Calmont return on July 1 so everybody could really get going for the new campaign.

‘It was great to play in a couple of really important games for my country. The tempo of the matches was completely different to what I have been more used to in League games for Millwall, which was an enjoyable challenge and more important experience for me. Our team is made up of boys who play in England and those who do over there, and it’s a good mix with a great spirit. I’m delighted that we’ve progressed in qualifying and on a personal level it’s good to have been able to keep myself ticking over fitness-wise ahead of the start of pre-season, which I’m buzzing for.’

As for the Millwall return next month and hopes for the coming season, he went on to say that the experience of Wembley will drive them all on this year.

‘All of the lads will be excited to come back and get going again. Hopefully we can build on the progress we made last season and use the experience of what happened at Wembley to our advantage. We will be working very hard to make sure we can get some momentum early on.’

With suspension ruling him out at the end of the campaign, he ended by saying that for himself, it was challenging, but it’s part of his development as well.

‘I have taken a lot from what happened. It was certainly a big learning curve and I’m sure that I will be a better player for it. I have put the incident behind me now and am looking forward to getting back out there in a Millwall shirt with the rest of the boys. Last season was so memorable for me. I want to keep improving as a player and to help the team try and go one better next May.’
