Millwall in the FA Cup: The Road to the Millennium
This is the first book ever to be solely focused on Millwall's FA Cup history. Every one of the Lions cup matches from 1887 up to and including their momentous appearance in the 2004 final are featured.
For a club like Millwall this book is a unique volume that is totally focused on one football trophy, namely the FA Cup, a competition that has not only excited fans, but the players and club officials since the professional game kicked off in 1888.
Contained within the book are previously unpublished photos and other material, some of which will show the highs and lows of Millwall's colourful and often sad story on their long and remarkable journey to the Millennium Stadium in 2004.
It will also bring back to life those early pioneers of Millwall Rovers who battled against the Old Boys sides from the public schools in the days before professionalism was adopted, with the likes of Harry Butler and goalkeeper Obed Caygill.
About the Author
David Sullivan was born and bred in Bermondsey, south-east London, in 1947 and has followed Millwall since the age of 11.
It was around May 2005 that he began to compile the book to fill a void in the club's literature by taking advantage of his own memorabilia and that of some other collectors' material.
His support of the Lions and his observation of the game for over 50 years should give him some right to attempt such a history.
