Brentford FC Head Coach Thomas Frank has received a special accolade from The Athletic. The subscription-based sports website held its annual awards earlier this week, looking at the top performers in football in the UK and beyond. Thomas was named as their Premier League Coach of the Season.

The Athletic provides coverage in 47 North American cities as well as the United Kingdom, covering English football, dedicating reporters to specific clubs as well as hiring writers to work across the game in this country. Brentford are covered by the website and subscribers have read about the Club all season. The work of Thomas to take us to 13th in our first Premier Legaue season has now been recognised.
