Millwall may never have won the top flight of English football, but they are one of a few clubs to have won each of the remaining three divisions in the Football League. The highest level they have won the league title at is the old Second Division, which they were crowned champions of in the 1987/88 season and consequently promoted to the top flight for the first time in their history alongside runners-up Aston Villa. It is in the third tier of English football that they have had the most success, winning the title three times. Their first victory in the league came in the 1927/28 season before they repeated the trick 10 years later in 1937/38.
Millwall’s most recent league title win came in the 2000/01 season, as they pipped runners-up Rotherham to the title by just two points. Their haul of Football League titles is complete with the Fourth Division title, which they won in the 1961/62 season. Millwall’s trophy room also features the Football League Group Cup, Third Division South Cup, Kent Senior Shield, London Challenge Cup, Western Football League, Southern Football League, London League, United League, East London Senior Cup and East London FA Cup.
Millwall was founded in 1885 as Millwall Rovers, with the club later becoming Millwall Athletic in 1889, before taking on their current-day name upon joining the Football League in 1920. Upon joining the Football League, Millwall became founding members of the Football League Third Division, later winning the title in the 1927/28 campaign. By 1939, they were the 11th-best-supported club in the country. Despite being known as a team that competed well in cup competitions, Millwall remained a Second and Third Division team for much of their early history, even dropping as low as the Fourth Division on occasion.
The Lions were forced to wait until 1988 to play in the First Division for the first time after winning the 1987/88 Second Division. Their spell in the top flight lasted two seasons and the team is noted for the strike partnership of Teddy Sheringham and Tony Cascarinio. Millwall started well in their first season at the level and topped the table by October, eventually finishing an impressive 10th in their first season, but were relegated back to the Second Division the following year. Millwall haven’t been back to the top flight since, but did reach the FA Cup final for the first time in 2004. Player-manager Dennis Wise led the club to the showpiece match against Manchester United in Cardiff, although they were on the wrong side of a 3-0 scoreline.
