Alex Pearce signs for Millwall

Alex Pearce has signed a permanent deal to stay at Millwall.

The former Reading centre back joined on loan from Derby County in January, making fifteen appearances and scoring once - that being the opening goal in the Lions’ eventual FA Cup defeat against Brighton.

Pearce became a popular figure under Neil Harris, captaining the side on a number of occasions.

He quickly became a fan’s favourite too with his passion and desire clear for all to see - Pearce would often be one of the first to applaud and celebrate with fans on successful away trips, with celebrations at St Andrews arguably the most memorable in a 2-0 win.

His leadership and professionalism proved vital in Millwall’s bid to secure Championship football for a third consecutive season as the Irishman formed a strong partnership with another former Reading defender in Jake Cooper.

The Lions kept five clean sheets in Pearce’s 15 appearances, a much better record than their defensive showing in the first half of 2018/19, which saw them keep just two clean sheets in their opening 23 league matches.
 

The 30-year-old becomes Harris' first summer signing.
