Mark Devlin: “Rob fitted in to the culture around the Club”

Brentford FC Chief Executive Mark Devlin pays tribute to Technical Director Robert Rowan

16 November 2018

Rob was first introduced to me as ‘a football geek who likes nothing better than to watch and analyse football matches long into the night’. They were almost right. Rob was anything but a geek. Right from the start Rob fitted in to the culture around the Club. Bright, enthusiastic, articulate and with a real passion and a great eye for finding young players who would fit in with what we, as a Club, were looking for.

Rob always had a smile on his face and clearly loved his work. He would go about his work in a passionate, yet understated, way and had time for everyone. He was well liked and well respected by everyone at the Club and by many outside of Brentford. I will miss him and our chats very much and we will all miss his presence and expertise.

Rest in Peace Rob.

Mark
