To finish off our Fish In The Community month we will be having our annual Fisher Community Day on Saturday 30th October – our home game with Deal Town. If you are new to the Fish or want an excuse to bring friends and family down to St Paul’s for the first time to experience the magic of a Fisher home game this is the perfect day to do it. Lots of local groups will be in attendance talking about the great work they do in the community (if you want to get involved or are just curious to find out what going on in your area) as well as competitons to win some excellent Millwall merchandise, our fan food collection and a great afternoon of football to boot.
