The 31-year-old arrives from Sheffield Wednesday to provide competition for David Forde, becoming Steve Lomas' first signing as Lions boss in the process.

Lomas said: "We already have an excellent keeper in David Forde and I'm hoping to persuade David to sign a new extended contract.

But you need competition for places in all areas of the team, and at 31 Stephen is a good age for a keeper with a wealth of experience at this level to push Fordey for his place in the team."

Bywater added: "I know David very well from our time together at West Ham and I'm looking forward to working with him again. I'm delighted to be joining Millwall and in doing so, first and foremost I will be a team player determined to do whatever is required by the manager for the club.

"However, I want to be playing as much first team football as possible, so I'll be challenging Fordey hard for that number one spot in the team, as he would expect."

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
