Shaun Williams today extended his Millwall contract until the end of the 2020/2021 season as the veteran midfielder ensures that he remains a key part of the future at The Den.
The 33-year-old midfielder has been a key player at Millwall over the past six years, becoming a vital cog in the team after signing from MK Dons.
Despite getting older and the legs beginning to go, Williams has proven how vital he is in the heart of midfield, having made 257 appearances and scoring 22 goals while wearing a Millwall shirt so far.
Williams is just 84 appearances away from breaking into the Lions’ top 10 appearance makers, a feat that he will be hoping to make across the next 18 months if he remains as a virtual ever-present.

The defensive midfielder has been like a man reborn since Gary Rowett was appointed as manager back in October, and the Lions supporters have been quick to praise one of their favourites out of the current Lions squad.
After signing his contract, Williams posted a positive message on Twitter as he celebrated putting pen to paper on a new contract until the summer of 2021, and here is the best reaction from Lions supporters to the veteran midfielder’s tweet…
