Brentford B are swiftly back in action today as they welcome Grasshopper Club Zürich Under-21s to Jersey Road in a 1pm kick-off.
The young Bees are in good form of late and go into the match off the back of an impressive 7-1 win over Harrow Borough in the London Senior Cup in midweek.
A hat-trick from Gustav Mogensen, two from Joe Adams as well as goals from Arthur Read and Jaden Brissett gave Neil MacFarlane’s side the win at Earlsmead and having also beaten the likes of AFC Wimbledon and Celtic reserves recently, The Bees have reason to be confident.
The match represents another very different test for Brentford B as the players look to continue their development against a whole host of different opposition.
The sides actually met in September last year when The Bees travelled to Switzerland before taking on their Swiss counterparts in two matches, the first of which Brentford were beaten 3-1 before the sides played a couple of days later and The Bees made amends with a 2-0 win.
The friendly against the Swiss side is open to the public so you can come along to watch the youngsters in action as they look to continue their positive run. Access to our Jersey Road training ground is from 12pm.
