Former Brentford captain Terry Evans added to Club's Hall of Fame

Former captain and central defender Terry Evans has become the latest former players to be inducted into the Brentford FC Hall of Fame.

The 49-year-old was at Griffin Park yesterday, Tuesday August 26, when Brentford played Fulham in a Capital One Cup tie.

He was presented with a salver to mark his induction by  Brentford Chairman Cliff Crown.

Terry joined The Bees for just £5,000 from Hillingdon Borough in the summer of 1985 and over the next eight years he wrote his name in to Brentford folklore.

He formed a formidible central defensive partnership with Keith Millen and the pair were regulars, injury aside, from October 1987 until the end of the 1992/93 season.

Terry, a six foot five inch mountain of a man, played 285 games in all competitions and scored 30 goals.

He captained The Bees to the 1991/92 Barclays League Division Three title and promotion to the second tier.

A serious knee injury he picked up on the first day of the following season arguably played a key role in Brentford's immediate relegation.

After David Webb arrived as Brentford Manager in the summer of 1993 Terry moved to Wycombe Wanderers and spent four years at the Buckinghamshire club before retiring.

He now works for Wasps RFC as Senior Physiotherapist.

Terry joins Malcolm MacDonald, Dai Hopkins, Joe James, Phil Holder, Dean Holdsworth, Jackie Graham, Alan Hawley, Bobby Ross and George Francis previously inducted.

The Hall of Fame is administered jointly by the Club, and The Brentford FC Former Players’ Association.

It is expected that more former players will be honoured over the course of the season, and beyond.
