Courtney back with The Bees after making professional debutBrentford Youth Team attacker Courtney Senior has returned to Brentford at the end of his loan with Sky Bet League Two promotion chasers Wycombe Wanderers.
The 17-year-old linked up with the Buckinghamshire side in early January and has spent the last month with them.
He made his Football League debut in a defeat against Plymouth Argyle yesterday, Tuesday February 10, his last game for The Chairboys.
He was an unused substitute on a further five occasions.
Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “Wycombe offered Courtney the chance to compete for a First Team place at League Two level and it will, I am sure, turn out to have been a very good experience for him.
“Training day-in-day-out in a team pushing for promotion and being involved on a match day when so much is on the line is a fantastic experience for him.
“I am sure we will see the benefits in the coming weeks and months.”
Courtney – a speedy wide attacker who can also play through the middle – announced his arrival as a 15-year-old when he was named Player of the Tournament as Brentford won the 2012 Milk Cup.
He scored his first Youth Team goal during the 2012/13 season when part of the Under-16 squad and signed a two-year scholarship at the end of that season.
Courtney made 25 appearances in the Under-18 Professional Development League Two South and FA Youth Cup for Brentford’s Youth Team last season scoring six goals as well as adding two in the 4-1 friendly win over AZ Alkmaar.
This term he has played nine Youth Team games, scoring twice, and played five Development Squad matches, to add to four appearances he made at Under-21 level as a 15-year-old in 2013.
His loan maintained Brentford’s relationship with Wycombe.
Development Squad defender Alfie Mawson will spend the 2014/15 season with the League Two outfit and fellow defender Aaron Pierre spent time on loan in Buckinghamshire last year before moving permanently in the summer.
Ose added: “This loan has once again shown the benefits of our link with Wycombe.
“They have looked after Courtney well and I am sure he will have improved in his month there.
“I hope we can have further dealings with them in the future.”
