"With our RTC, development and first teams playing and training here, we have a solid home base. We'd like to thank the Council and Millwall Community Trust for the opportunity to have our own home."
Lionesses manager Lee Burch added: "We aim to make this a mini Den. It's a great ground, not too far from The Den, so it keeps us close to our roots. We want to have the same atmosphere we get there at St Paul's, which will sound fantastic throughout the Spring Series."
