About the Author
David Sullivan was born and bred in Bermondsey, south-east London, in 1947 and has followed Millwall since the age of 11. It was around May 2005 that he began to compile the book to fill a void in the club's literature by taking advantage of his own memorabilia and that of some other collectors' material. His support of the Lions and his observation of the game for over 50 years should give him some right to attempt such a history. Allied to that is the fact that for the past 11 years David has contributed to the official match programme with an historical theme such as 'Pre-war A - Z of Players', 'On This Day' and 'Theirs and Ours', and in the past he has compiled quizzes for the publication. With a fellow historian, he has written three other publications: Millwall Football Club 1885-1939, Millwall Football Club 1940-2001 and Millwall Football Club: 50 of the Finest Matches.
