Place of birthWembley
NationalityCanadian

Bircham took some time to recover from an injury suffered back in February 2000 and was only used sparingly by Millwall at the start of the 2000-01 campaign.

He then went down with a bout of tonsillitis before injuries and suspensions to others allowed him back in the team.

When fit he produced some excellent performances and captained the team on a number of occasions.

He is a hard-working central midfield player with some creative touches who can also play at full back.

Bircham again featured for Canada at international level, winning a further three caps.

Bircham was made available for transfer by Queens Park Rangers in May 2006.
