First Team return to action tonight

Pay-on-the-day at Meadow Park this evening

6 July 2018

Nine weeks on from our last game, Dean Smith's Bees return to action tonight with a trip to National League side Boreham Wood.

The game will kick-off at 7.30pm and all Bees fans looking to attend the game can pay on the day at Meadow Park.

Admission prices are as follows:

Adults £15

Seniors (aged 65 and over) £12

Juniors (aged under 16) £6

Under-fives can enter free of charge.

This will be the fifth season in six that Brentford have played Boreham Wood in pre-season, and the sixth year in seven overall. Brentford won an FA Cup First Round tie at Meadow Park in 2012 and then played friendly games in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Boreham Wood won the last meeting between the sides 2-1 in July 2016.

Boreham Wood have been on the rise in recent years and, if things had been different, could have hosted The Bees as an EFL side. When the teams first met the Hertfordshire side were in the National League, then Conference, South. They reached the top flight of non-league football in 2015 and finished fourth in the National League in 2017/18. They reached the National League Play-Off Final but lost 2-1 to Tranmere Rovers at Wembley.

Tonight's game sees the start of Brentford’s friendly programme. They will fly to Germany for a week-long training camp tomorrow with a game against Karlsruher Sport-Club Mühlburg-Phönix e.V. at the home of ASV Grassau to the end of the trip. They will then face Wycombe Wanderers away from home on Tuesday 17 July. On Saturday 21 July, Brentford play away to Sky Bet League One Shrewsbury Town. The game will be one of two played that day with a Behind Closed Doors friendly against Premier League opposition also scheduled. The Bees end their pre-season with a game against Watford at Griffin Park on Saturday 28 July.
