13 July 2012

Defender joins Bees from Millwall

Tony Craig has completed his move from Millwall to Brentford Football Club after passing a medical and signing the paperwork this afternoon.
The Club announced this morning that a deal had been agreed to bring the defender from South London to Griffin Park.
The formalities of the deal have now been complete and Tony is a Brentford player.
He has signed from Millwall for an undisclosed fee and has agreed a three-year contract at Griffin Park.
The 27-year-old was part of the Millwall team which won promotion from League One via the Play-Offs in 2010 and he has played almost 50 games in The Championship in the past two seasons.
Tony, a tall left sided defender, also played in the second tier for Crystal Palace and captained Millwall during the 2008/09 season.
Brentford Manager Uwe Rösler said:"Tony is one of our key signings for this summer.
"I was always looking for an experienced player, especially in our defence and I feel I have got the right player.
"He has been there - in terms of winning promotion from League One and establishing himself in The Championship - and he is a great age.
"To have someone on board with that sort of experience, who can tell the players what it will take to make it happen at Brentford is what we are looking for as we move forward as a Club.
"That is what we missed at decisive moments last season.
"Tony played 29 matches in The Championship last season, it is fantastic for the Football Club that we can get a player of his calibre.
"He will be a valuable asset.
"It shows our ambition, and the fact that Tony wants to be part of what we are trying to achieve speaks volumes.
"We welcome him and his family and we hope he has a great time at the Club."
Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Sporting Director, said: "This is a significant signing for the Club.
"We have pursued Tony for a number of months and we recognise what he can bring to the team on and off the pitch.
"Our scouting network watched him numerous times.
"Tony gave great service to Millwall and was part of their team that won promotion.
"We are delighted to welcome Tony and we are sure he will play an important part in the season ahead."
