MONTELL MOORE SIGNS FIRST PROFESSIONAL DEAL AT BRENTFORD

30 June 2014

18-year-old signs one-year Development Squad deal at Griffin Park.

Montell Moore has signed his first professional contract to be part of the Development Squad at Brentford Football Club.
Montell, 18, completed his two-year scholarship at the end of the 2013/14 season and was given the chance to turn professional.
He signed a one-year deal at Griffin Park last week.
Montell was given a contract after a fine season for both Youth Team and Development Squad. 
The 18-year-old led the Youth Team’s scoring charts in 2013/14 with nine goals in 16 games to add to his five goals in the first year of his scholarship. 
He scored his first Development Squad goal in the defeat to Queens Park Rangers in March and made seven appearances for the Under-21 side in 2013/14. 
Montell joined Brentford at the age of seven and lives in the town.
Ose Aibangee, Brentford FC Academy Director, said: “Montell had a good season and deserved his offer of a contract.
“He was an attacking threat in Youth Team games, scoring important goals, and stepped up to the Development Squad to play games.
“He has shown he has what it takes to play at that level and now will have the chance to push on.
“Montell has been with us for a long time; he came through the ranks and is a local lad.
“It is great for the younger boys in the Academy to see him turning professional and we may see someone who grew up in Brentford will represent Brentford in a First Team match at our new stadium.
“That is what the Club is all about.
“We believe he could play for Brentford in The Championship and his job now is to do everything in his power to make that happen.”
