The men who've shaped Millwall - 1920's

The men who've shaped Millwall - 1920's


In the early 1880's a group of young lads from Scotland came to London to find work.
They found employment at Morton's jam factory in the West Ferry Road on the Isle of Dog's and within a few years had formed Millwall Rovers.

On Saturday 3rd October 1885 Millwall Rovers played their first ever game which they lost 5-0 against Fillebrook

As we celebrate Millwall's 125th year, we look at a significant player from each decade who has been part of the history of Millwall FC.



1920's Alf Amos

Alfred Herbert Amos was born 0n 9th February 1893 in Forest Hill, London.

Alf joined Millwall in May 1922 from Brentford, after previously playing as an amateur with Kingstonian.

Was happy at either right or left back and was a vigorous tackler and a player who supported his forwards well with his clever footwork and accurate passing.

He played in nine of the 11 matches in 1926, when Millwall created a Football league record for the most consecutive matches without conceding a goal.

He won a Third Division (South)Championship medal and a London Challenge Cup winners' medal whilst at The Den.

Alf was part of the great FA Cup giant killing team of 1927 who knocked out triple League Champions, Huddersfield Town in the third round.

After eight years at The Den, Amos left to become player-coach of Hitchin.

Alf passed away in Dunstable on 9th March 1964.
