Millwall have had a fairly mixed start to the season but manager, Neil Harris, will be happy to be sitting in 12th place after a relegation scare last season.
The Lions have picked up some very positive results including an impressive point away at an unbeaten West Brom side.
Harris’ side don’t have the type of transfer funds that other clubs in the division can boast to attain, but season after season they’re able to be competitive against every outfit in the league.
There are some youngsters coming through the academy that will have given the club optimism for the future, and they’ll be hoping that the gems that they have found can lead them to success in the long-term.
Here are 2 wonderkids at the club that should on the radar of Lions’ supporters…
Mitchell is just 18-years-old and has enjoyed his development over a number of years and has proved a crucial part to both the under-18 and the under-23 sides in past seasons.
He plays in central-midfield and has an excellent eye for a pass. In 2018, he played an FA Youth Cup game against Tottenham at The Den and scored an unbelievable 30-yard strike that really put his name on the map.
Mitchell has played 12 minutes for the first team as he came on in the last game of the season against Wigan. A long and successful career is in the making at Millwall if he’s to continue his excellent development so far.
Alexander is also just 18-years-old and is a highly rated striker for the Millwall youth sides. He’s been fantastic in the younger sides and has family ties within the club, as his dad, Gary, scored a spectacular goal at Wembley in Millwall’s play-off defeat to Scunthorpe in 2009.
The striker has played 23 minutes of first-team football in his career, also against Wigan on the last day of the 2018/2019 campaign. He’ll be hoping for more chances in the future if he can continue his meteoric rise with the younger sides.
