Fans and former players play to raise money for Stan Bowles

17 May 2017

Fans and former players take part in Griffin Park exhibition match to raise money for Stan Bowles.

Griffin Park became the stage on Saturday as two sets of fans played out an exhibition match in order to raise money for former player Stan Bowles, whom is suffering with Altzhiemer's disease.

Former players Kevin O'Connor, Stephen Hunt, Marcus Gayle, David Hunt, Chris Moore, Simon Royce and Richard Lee all took part in the friendly, played on a warm afternoon in West London.

When asked to use the Griffin Park turf for the fundraiser, Brentford CEO Mark Devlin agreed without a moment's thought; while the B Team Kit Department, led by Trish Taylor, supplied match balls and kits for the two sides.

With eight goals in the clash, there was no shortage of action, and highlights are available to watch via our YouTube channel below.

You can still donate to the fund, that has so far raised just under £30,000 for Stan, by heading to the GoFundMe page here. A full match DVD will also be made available shortly for just £15, with all proceeds going towards the fund.
