Brentford midfield player George Saville looks back on his time at Griffin Park on loan from Chelsea

George Saville said he was delighted with his 2013/14 campaign and described it as the “perfect season”.

The midfield player has spent the season on loan at Brentford from Chelsea.

He played 44 games in all competitions; scoring three goals and helping The Bees win promotion from Sky Bet League One.

George, speaking to Bees Player after Brentford’s last game of the season against Stevenage, said promotion was the aim at the start of the campaign and he wanted to play as many games as possible.

He admitted his form had dipped at times in his first full season but he was delighted with how it had gone.

“This has been the perfect season,” said George.

“I am delighted.

“This is what I aimed for at the start of the season.

“The goal for the Club was to get promoted and my goal was to play as many games as possible and help the team achieve the aim.

“It has been win-win.

“I am delighted with my season.

“I have had ups and downs and maybe a bit of inconsistency but the majority of the season I am delighted with.

“It is my first season, I have been tired in the odd game or slightly off it but I am delighted and the Club has been happy.”

Brentford ended the season with a 2-0 win over already relegated Stevenage.

George said with The Bees already up the team wanted to win to ensure there was a party atmosphere at Griffin Park.

“Neither team had much to play for but it is always nice to finish on a high,” he said.

“We didn’t want to lose; it would have ruined the mood a little.”

Brentford’s players were presented with medals to mark their promotion.

George said the Stevenage match and the one against Preston North End when The Bees secured promotion were days that he would cherish.

“I will always remember this day and the day against Preston,” he said.

“I hope I will remember most of the season.

“It has been an enjoyable season.

“I have had a short football career but the day against Preston was the best day of my football life.

“It was a great day.”

George said his future was in the hands of Chelsea and his agent.

“Chelsea will be talking to my agent,” he explained.

“I do my talking on the pitch.

“I have done that.

“I have enjoyed my time here whatever happens next.”
