Birthdays

Gerard Baker (1938): 8 appearances, 2 goals

American-born Baker joined The Bees on loan from Coventry City in late 1969. Both the 31-year-old’s goals came as the openers in convincing home wins; the first setting us on our way to a  5-2 victory over Peterborough United, the second coming during a 3-0 win against Grimsby.

Lewis Dark (1989): 3 appearances, 0 goals

Dark joined our Centre of Excellence in 2005 from Tottenham Hotspur. His three Brentford appearances came at the end of the disastrous 2006/07 season under the man who brought him to West London, Barry Quin. The 19-year-old was released at the end of the 2007/08 season and has spent the last 12 years playing in the non-league.

Debuts
