Day of celebration held against Rotherham United to remember events of 1967
Yesterday's Sky Bet Championship fixture against Rotherham United saw the culmination of the 1967 takeover commemorations. With Queens Park Rangers launching an audacious plan to buy Griffin Park and make The Bees homeless, players, supporters, and club staff came together as one to fight off these plans and secure the future of Brentford at Griffin Park.
Thousands of fans, whose names were paraded on a giant flag before the match, bought shares to raise funds for the club and the actions of those involved proved to all concerned that Brentford was a club worth saving. Two of those who played their part in the fight, Geoff Buckingham and Alfred Boulden, were presented on the pitch at half-time yesterday and spoke to Peter Gilham, whose connection to the club also goes back to the events of 1967.
Watch their interviews with Peter below.
