The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

SHAUN Derry ad­mits his fam­ily had as much of a say in his move to Mill­wall as him af­ter he com­pleted his switch from QPR.

The ver­sa­tile 35-yearold has joined the Lions on a month-long loan deal af­ter speak­ing with R’s boss Harry Red­knapp about his chances of break­ing into the first team at Lof­tus Road.

But once Mill­wall came call­ing Derry claims it was an easy de­ci­sion.

“Mill­wall man­ager Steve Lo­mas con­tacted QPR and I had a chat with Harry and we both de­cided it was per­haps best for me to get some games,” said Derry,” who played 19 times in the Pre­mier League last term.

“I was well up for it. I am absolutely chuffed to bits to be at Mill­wall.

“I'm here first and fore­most to play football and to help the club get fur­ther up the league than they were last year.

“Also, the lo­cal­ity of it is great for me be­cause I live just around the cor­ner and the pas­sion of the place and the sup­port­ers is fan­tas­tic. My wife’s fam­ily are all Mill­wall fans so they are de­lighted and so am I.”
