Steve Gallen has replaced Alex Aldridge as Director of Football at Millwall.

Gallen leaves Charlton, where he has worked for the last seven years, including as Director of Football. For the last two-and-a-half years he has been Head of Recruitment.

Aldridge had been Director of Football Operations and Recruitment at Millwall since March 2022, having previously been the Head of Recruitment at Stoke. He has now been the victim of an end-of-season cull that includes CEO Steve Kavanagh and Chief Operating Officer Billy Taylor.

Millwall Chairman James Berylson said: “Alex began as a Recruitment Officer for the club in 2015 and was quickly promoted to Head of Recruitment. After a short spell in the same capacity at Stoke, Alex returned to the club as Director of Football Operations and Recruitment and helped the club to improve all aspects of scouting, facilities and analytics.

“Billy and Alex will always be part of the Millwall family, and I have the highest regards for both of them.”

In a statement, Millwall added that Gallen had “a proven track record of establishing a process and platform for identifying and developing talent at all stages” and that his main focus at the club would be “to use his experience to elevate all parts of football operations from the Academy to the first team.”
