The Brentford B fixture list for the 2018/19 season is being collated and the first game can now be confirmed. Brentford B will face Maidstone United on Tuesday 17 July in a match that will kick-off at 7.45pm. The game will be a pre-season friendly for Maidstone as they prepare for the 2018/19 season. The Kent side play in the Vanarama National League and will start the new season in August.
Maidstone United were formed in 1992 as Maidstone Invicta to fill the gap left by the bankruptcy of the old Maidstone United, who were in the Football League from 1989 until they went out of business. The club climbed through the leagues and reached the top level of non-league football in 2016. They are now entering their third year at that level.
Brentford B will also be beginning their third season. Kevin O’Connor’s squad will resume training later this week ahead of the new campaign and their games will start in early July. They will be looking to build on a successful 2017/18 which saw Brentford B win 25 of 40 games this season, losing just 11. More details on this game and others arranged will follow in due course.
