Brentford Football Club has to report the sad news that Robert Rowan died at the age of 28 on Monday, 12 November. Robert had been the Club’s Technical Director since the start of February, having joined Brentford four years ago.
Robert had been with Brentford since late 2014 and was appointed as the Club’s Head of Football Operations in the summer of 2015. As well as managing the day to day football operations at Brentford’s Jersey Road Training Ground, Robert oversaw the strategic direction of Brentford B – the Club’s elite squad of players aged 17 to 21, before taking on the role of Technical Director.
All at the Club have been left devastated by the news. All our thoughts are with Robert’s wife, his family and all his friends – many of whom work at Brentford FC.
