Special Edition Bees Review on sale this Saturday

22 February 2017

Rotherham United programme commemorates 50th anniversary QPR's attempted takeover

A special collectors’ edition of Bees Review, spanning 108 pages and costing £5, will be sold against Rotherham United as the club celebrates those supporters who successfully fought against Queens Park Rangers' attempted takeover in 1967.

Saturday's fixture against The Millers marks 50 years since the successful efforts of supporters, players, and staff to ward off the sale of Griffin Park to Rangers which would have seen The Bees made homeless.

The matchday programme will publish a complete list of all fans that purchased shares in the Club from 20 April 1967 to 6 June 1969 which has been compiled from a recently found shares allotment book created at the time. 

The bumper edition, the largest Brentford programme ever sent to print, also includes historical features looking back at this chaotic period in the club's history and the actions of those involved to secure the future of the club.

Alongside the special commemorative content, Terry Evans looks back at his time with Brentford, 25 years on from the club's 1991-92 promotion winning season and there is an in-depth interview with Spanish star Sergi Canos. There's an interview with Brentford B midfielder Reece Cole as well as a round-up of the latest first-team and B Team action.

Don’t miss out on a piece of history: celebrate the 50th anniversary of the fans saving Brentford by booking tickets now for The Bees’ home match against Rotherham United on 25 February. Prices are just £1 for Juniors, £5 for Young Persons, and £20 for adults all over Griffin Park.
