B Team releases two players

Edobor and Johansson leave after completion of their contracts

14 May 2019

Brentford B have confirmed that Jarvis Edobor and Henrik Johansson will be leaving the Club following the completion of their contracts. They have both been with Brentford for more than two-and-a-half years.

21-year-old Henrik joined The Bees from Halmstads Bollklubb in January 2017. Grandson of legendary Brazilian Garrincha, the Swedish youth international got off to a great start as part of the side that won the Kai Thor Cup. Henrik scored the second goal in the final, between strikes from Justin Shaibu and Zain Westbrooke.

He went on to make five more appearances that season before a muscle tear put him out for over a year. That was quickly followed by a short-lived return to action against Manchester United at Griffin Park, before injury struck again. That Griffin Park cameo turned out to be his only appearance of the 17/18 campaign.

This season was a positive one for Henrik. He made 25 appearances and scored four times, including one against local rivals Queens Park Rangers U23s at Jersey Road.

Jarvis, 19, was the first player who joined the Club as a Brentford B professional. First working under the guidance of Flemming Pedersen, then Kevin O'Connor and Lars Friis, Jarvis has made 95 appearances across his three seasons with the B Team.

Another winner of the Kai Thor Cup from 2017, Jarvis has also featured in some of the B Team's biggest games. Among others, he's faced Bayern Munich, Braga, Manchester City and OGC Nice.

This season, Jarvis spent the last six months on loan at Maidstone United, while being eligible for The Bees as well. He made his debut in a 1-0 win over Boreham Wood in the Vanarama National League on 29 December 2018.

Departing B Team Head Coach Lars Friis said: "Both of these guys have been great ambassadors for the Club. Their application on the pitch and attitude in the dressing room have been spot on. They have given so much to us, and I hope they take away just as much from this experience. This is not the end of a career, it is only the start of a new chapter and I wish them all the best luck for their futures. I will certainly be keeping an eye on their progress."
