A collection will be held at our home game against Stoke City next Saturday for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), in memory of Robert Rowan.
Robert, who would have been 29 today, died suddenly of heart failure last November. Robert had been with the Club since late 2014 and was appointed as Head of Football Operations in the summer of 2015.
As well as managing the day to day football operations at our 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.
Collectors from CRY will be at Griffin Park next Saturday, as will members of Robert’s family, for the game which falls closest to our dearly missed colleague's birthday.
A Just-Giving page has been set up raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young and supporters can donate online.
