The Brentford Supporters Trust, Bees United,says it fully supports the club statement made after an arrest at Griffin Park during the Derby County match. Bees United also condemned any form of racist and discriminatory abuse.

The Club statement said;

'Brentford Football Club can confirm that a Season Ticket Holder was arrested following today’s game against Derby County. The man in question has been accused of committing a racially-aggravated public order offence in the later stages of today’s game. He was identified at the time, removed from the ground and subsequently arrested.

Brentford FC will continue to liaise with the Metropolitan Police, who will now investigate the incident. The Club utterly condemns discrimination of any kind. It is abhorrent and has no place in society and we are determined to drive it out of Griffin Park. 

The most severe sanctions will be imposed on any individual convicted of discrimination and we will await the result of the Police investigation before commenting further'.


David Merritt has stepped down from his position on the Brentford FC Board of Directors after more than 11 years in the role. David was appointed to the Board in late 2007 when he took over as Chairman of Bees United, the Brentford FC Supporters’ Trust – which owned the majority shareholding in the Club from 2006 to 2012. The rules of Bees United prevent someone being on the Board of the Supporters’ Trust for more than 12 years. As such, David will stand down as Chairman of BU at the forthcoming AGM, in March, and will also leave the Club Board at the same time.



The Brentford FC Supporters Trust, Bees United, joins everybody at Brentford Football Club in mourning the passing of our Technical Director,Rob Rowan.

Rob’s story is an extraordinary and inspirational one that has come to a tragically early end at the age of 28.We will never know where his career would have taken him but we can be sure it would have been to the very top.



Cliff Crown has now been Chairman of Brentford  FC for five years. On the anniversary in June he tweeted that it had been an 'incredible journey' so far and he wrote of 'the progress we have made'. To mark the anniversary, Cliff answered questions from Bees United about player trading, who will sit where in the new stadium, whether Matthew Benham would ever sell part of the club and lots of other talking points. Thanks to BU Board member Greville Waterman for collating all our questions and to Cliff for answering them all head on.

Chris Gammon

Chris Gammon resigned as a Director of Lionel Road Developments Ltd last week and the Board of Bees United, speaking on behalf of all its members, would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to Chris for all the years of hard work, selflessness and utter professionalism that he has dedicated towards his goal of bringing about a new community stadium for Brentford FC.

Chris has been at the forefront of the stadium project since 2003, as well as being a former Director of Bees United. He has worked tirelessly alongside Brian Burgess and is owed a huge debt of gratitude by all Brentford supporters as when the time comes that we move into Lionel Road he will have been one of the major contributors towards making all our dreams come to fruition.
