WE MAY HAVE TO UP­ROOT – LI­ONS

The Football League Paper - - BIG INTERVIEW - By Tom Black­ett

MILL­WALL’S fu­ture in south Lon­don could be in jeop­ardy if land around The Den is sold off to prop­erty de­vel­op­ers.

The Li­ons fear they may be forced to re­lo­cate to Kent if Lewisham Coun­cil go through with con­tro­ver­sial plans to sell land to de­vel­op­ers Re­newal.

A com­pul­sory pur­chase or­der is ex­pected to be con­firmed at a coun­cil meet­ing on Wed­nes­day and the League One out­fit are con­cerned this would prove fa­tal for the Mil­wall Com­mu­nity Trust and their academy.

In a state­ment, Mill­wall chief ex­ec­u­tive Steve Ka­vanagh told the

Guardian: “The chair­man (John Beryl­son) has al­ways been de­ter­mined that this (leav­ing Lewisham) would never hap­pen, but un­der such cir­cum­stances any and ev­ery op­tion would have to be con­sid­ered to se­cure the foot­ball club and the Mill­wall Com­mu­nity Trust’s fu­ture as vi­able con­cerns.”
