Saturday 5th February 2010-2011 season, Championship, Millwall 1 Doncaster 0 att. 11.427
Over the years Millwall FC has been supported by many dock workers from the north and south side of the river Thames and as a tribute to them this yearly event has been put together and has been running for five years. It is organised by the club and by the fans with people like Chris Bethell and Peter Garston putting in plenty of hard work to make this event happen successful. This is the first one that I have fetched a camera and hopefully it records the day for you to enjoy.
The 5th annual Dockers day coincided with the visit of Doncaster Rovers.
Doncaster Rovers turn up
The East Stand is renamed the Dockers Stand, I heard a few moans about this re-naming of the East Stand but I like it.
This special day was hi-lighted by the appearance of some of the 1987/88 squad that played throughout that season and succeeded in winning the old 2nd division title that took the Lions into the top flight for the very first time.
