CAMERON Harris is set to lock horns with his dad when Concord Rangers welcome Championship side Millwall to the Aspect Arena for their opening pre-season friendly.

The promising central defender is in line to feature against the Lions, who are managed by former Southend United striker Neil Harris.

And Beach Boys boss Danny Scopes believes the clash will be a good learning experience for the teenager.

“Cameron has been taking part in pre-season training with us and he will get some minutes on the pitch,” said Scopes, who will be in charge for the first time since succeeding Sammy Moore as manager in May.

“He is only 17 and last year was a great learning curve for him after making his debut at Slough Town and then being in and out of the first team squad.

“Cameron deserves the opportunity to be involved tomorrow and it will be great for him to go up against his dad.

“In the short-term, Cameron may go out on loan to get some games in men’s football because it’s difficult to go straight into the National League South.

“But we will continue to look at him and he is developing really well.”

Harris’ Millwall are preparing for a third consecutive campaign in the second tier of English football.

And Scopes is looking forward to seeing his new-look side go head-to-head with the Lions.

“Pre-season has come around quickly and it has been non-stop for us due to the change in management and turnover of players,” he added.

“It’s a great fixture for the football club and we’re hopeful that we will be able to attract a decent crowd. The 1pm kick-off may help with that as well.

“I know that Millwall’s new players will be sticking around after the game to meet their supporters, so there may be some Millwall fans coming down.

“It’s fantastic that Neil is bringing his first team for the game.

“It will be a good test for our boys and it’s the kind of game you want to play in.

“The new players have an opportunity to show our supporters and the management team what they can do.

“We won’t judge it on the result because this fixture is simply for preparing for the upcoming season.

“Millwall are a Championship side so we know that we will have to do a lot of work off the ball, but that will be good for fitness.

“Hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves and we can show we’re on the right track as we move towards the new season.”
