The 6th annual Dockers Day a few weeks ago, With his hand in his overcoat pocket Kitch always found time for a picture or a handshake.30/3/2012
602 games for Millwall, I am just gutted that I didn't see all of them.
I am very sad to hear of the passing of Millwall legend Barry Kitchener. I can remember watching Millwall with "Kitch" in the team in the 1970's and as a defender he was indestructible as he stopped the opposing teams attackers in their tracks. As a supporter, there was nothing quiet like Kitch to warm you up on a freezing cold night in January with a raw gutsy solid display that had the opposition wimpering home with their tails between their legs. RIP big fella
Taken from the forum Charltonlife:
Even our local opposition was in awe of the man, and there was plenty more who were saying the same thing. Nice one.
7/4/12.....back at the Den and following a Memorial for Kitch it's a 2-0 win for the Wall against Hull City
Letting everybody know

The Kitch factor and another win
10/4/22 Portsmouth 0 Millwall 1
A draw and two wins takes us eight points clear of the drop and the Millwall team looked to me to be only a few steps away from being a top-notch side. They have the quality and the desire to play for the shirt and I also see many instances of guts, grit and battling spirit that can only be described as "Wall" or as we also call it "proper Wall"
Barry Kitchener memorial ...the club, the team, the supporters, memories and the history.
There's no stopping us now
There's still a bit of this season left so I am not counted chickens before they have hatched (although it may seem that by what I wrote above) and I still think we need something else from the remaining four games, the twelve points would be nice but just a few would do.
14/04/12 Game 43 Millwall 2 Leicester 1 WE ARE MATHEMATICALLY SAFE
Yes, we get something else, three wins on the spin and another three points. A top drawer couple of weeks and the season is saved. I have trawled back through the fixtures and although we were always down in the lower regions of the Championship we have always done enough to keep just ahead of the pack . Keeping ahead of the relegation pack has come about by some blinding away wins at places like Forest and Leicester. The re-discovery of winning at home is happy days and as I said before "there's no stopping us now"
17/04/12 Game 44 Coventry 0 Millwall 1 -Lowry scores his first goal
The best spell we have had this season and the winning run continues. We may have sent the Sky Blues down to the 1st division.
21/4/12 Game 45 Ipswich 0 Millwall 3- five wins on the spin and we take top position for best placed South London club. A fantastic end to the season and well done to the team for carrying on trying to win games and not just thinking about their holidays.
28/04/12 Game 46 Millwall 2 Blackpool 2- we finish with a draw and above Palace.
