Terry farewell to the Bridge begins

The final Chelsea Premier League match for our most successful player and captain, John Terry, takes place this afternoon, and the skipper has said he hopes to 'treasure and savour' every moment on what will undoubtedly be an emotional day.
Terry has been named in the starting line-up as we bring the curtain down on a magnificent Premier League campaign at home to Sunderland.
The Premier League trophy will be presented to the Blues after the game, with Terry set to hold it aloft for the fifth time in his career.
‘After speaking to the manager it’s obviously nice to get a start in my final game at the Bridge and a send-off,’ said Terry, on arrival at the stadium. ‘Most importantly we’ve got the Premier League sealed but for me it’s a great way to end my career here.
‘It’s all of those emotions: the last time you walk in or drive in, the last time you walk up the steps into the dressing room. There will be really sad and emotional times today for sure, but ones I’m going to try to treasure and savour.’
Terry has enjoyed a truly wonderful Chelsea career since making his debut in a League Cup game against Aston Villa in 1998.
He is the most successful captain in the club’s history and one of only three players, along with Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti, to make 700 appearances for the club.
Terry was asked if he would ever have believed he could achieve so much success at the club when he first started out.
‘No, looking back when I signed here as a 14-year-old definitely not,’ he responded. ‘Where Chelsea have come in the last 15-20 years is incredible really. The owner deserves a lot of credit for that, and the players as well, to continue that hunger for success season after season.
‘That’s a message for the boys, once I leave, to continue winning trophies for this football club and for these supporters.’
Below are some images of how Terry’s day at the stadium began.
