We are still not back to having a usual matchday experience but some of the normal routines are in place at our new home. One of those will be that Peter Gilham – the longest-serving matchday announcer in the country – will be at the game, as he has been at all our home games at our new stadium. There have been the usual matchday announcements of teams and goal scorers and he is also reading out your messages.

Have a look and a listen to some of what Peter Gilham, Brentford's long-serving matchday announcer, was able to read out at our new stadium against Queens Park Rangers last Friday. We requested messages from fans and they arrived in their droves. Can you hear yours?

The Bees welcome Blackburn Rovers to our new stadium on Saturday, 5 December, in a match that will kick-off at 3pm. We will be able to have some fans in the stadium for the game but many will, unfortunately, have to stay at home as Government restrictions limit us to an attendance of 2,000. The game will be live on iFollow Brentford and we hope fans will be able to hear Peter and have a little more Brentford coming in to their homes.

As part of this, we are collating messages for Peter to read out at the game. It is intended this will continue at our remaining home games until we can welcome all fans back. If you have a message, please send it to [email protected] by 1pm tomorrow, Friday 4 December. Please keep them short so we can read as many out as possible. Please note, we cannot guarantee reading out all messages but will try to read as many as possible.

We are not on TV this weekend, which means the only way to watch us from home is through iFollow. For just £10 (£7 for international fans) you can keep up with all the action live.
