Youth Team set for Griffin Park finale next month

30 April 2015

Brentford to play Charlton Athletic in Under-18 Professional Development League Two Final on May 6 or 12

Brentford’s Youth Team will play their Under-18 Professional Development League Two Final at Griffin Park early next month.
The Bees reached the winner-takes-all clash with a 2-1 win against Huddersfield Town on Monday, April 27.
They will face Charlton Athletic and the match will take place at Griffin Park.
With Brentford’s fate at Sky Bet Championship level still unknown, two dates have been earmarked.
If The Bees do not reach the Championship Play-Offs, the game will be played next Wednesday, May 6.
If Mark Warburton’s side do secure a top six finish, it will be played on Tuesday May 12.
The game, on whatever evening it is played, will kick-off at 7pm and Bees fans are encouraged to come to Griffin Park and back the next generation of Brentford players in the biggest game of the season.
Entry will be FREE and will be via the Braemar Road turnstiles.
Brentford missed out on topping the Under-18 Professional Development League Two South table to Charlton, finishing second despite taking 54 points from their 27 games.
They looked set to win the league as they led the way for much of the campaign and were unbeaten in their last 11 games, a run that stretches back to January 10 and has now been extended to 12.
But draws in their last two games left the door ajar and Charlton took the title by two points after winning their last eight games, a run they have now taken to nine.
That gave The Bees an away Semi-Final against northern section winners Huddersfield Town which they won 2-1 thanks to goals from Seth Owens and top-scorer Bradley Clayton.
Charlton booked their place in the final with a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
Brentford had the better of the matches between the teams this season, winning 2-1 at home in November with two goals from midfield player James Ferry and then beating The Addicks 3-2 in South London in January as Jeremiah Kamanzi, Kyjuon Marsh-Brown and Clayton scored.
