Brentford B will be playing one of their prestige fixtures this week and will be looking to extend their lengthy winning run. Kevin O’Connor’s side will face a team from Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht at Griffin Park this Friday, 13 March. The game will be played at Griffin Park and will kick-off at 7.30pm. Entry will be free and fans are encouraged to turn up and watch the next generation of Brentford players.
This prestigious friendly has been funded by The Brentford Lifeline Society as part of their support for the future of Brentford FC. The Brentford Lifeline Society recently celebrated its 32nd year. Through its membership and the many initiatives it has supported, the society has raised well in excess of £2m for the parent club both directly and indirectly. All funds raised by sponsorship and a matchday draw on Friday will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK.
Brentford B have won their last six full fixtures and have not lost for more than two months. In the past three weeks there have been wins over a Manchester United side and a team from Chelsea as well as Shanghai SIPG. That added to victories against Glasgow Rangers, Barnet and Shamrock Rovers. In the midst of those fixtures, Kevin O’Connor’s side were 4-0 up against a Swansea City side before snow forced the game to be abandoned and had a training game win over Kelty Hearts.
The last defeat suffered by Brentford B was against Dundalk on a trip to Ireland in early February. That loss was one of only two suffered by Kevin O’Connor’s side in their last 13 games. They won one and lost one in a double-header against Reading in January after kicking off the year with a 3-3 draw against an Exeter City XI. Brentford B have now won 22 and lost only nine of their 35 games so far this term.
The 2017/18 fixture list has including wins against sides including Benfica B, Everton and Legia Warsaw as well as Italian giants Internazionale Milano and Associazone Calcio Milan. And there are more big games coming up. Fixtures have been arranged against Manchester City and a trip to Portugal has been lined up for next month with games in place against Futebol Clube de Porto and Sporting Clube de Braga. More details will follow on all games in due course.
