Brentford midfield player Josh Dasilva represented the Club when Chancellor Rishi Sunak visited Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub for a special girls’ football session run by Brentford FC Community Sports Trust last month. The visit came after the Government committed £25 million of new funding to support the growth of grassroots football. Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub is part of the separate Hubs programme, which has received £4 million from the government-backed Football Foundation, delivering for community and grassroots sport, creating new jobs and boosting people’s health and wellbeing.

While at the event, Josh gave his thoughts on Brentford winning promotion to the Premier League. He updated on his injury and discussed what it is like to be a watcher rather than a participant. He also reflected on last season overall.
