Every single person who has set foot in Griffin Park during the lifetime of the stadium will have their own personal memories and recollections etched somewhere in the back of their minds. Whether it be the first glimpse of the lush green grass, the first viewing point or a favoured vantage spot, the smell of the liniment, cigar smoke, the chants from the crowd, the music to accompany the team’s entrance onto the pitch – or of a favourite player.
Although many celebratory moments will have been shared, moments of disappointment and despair will also have been witnessed and each and every one of us will know what Griffin Park means to us as individuals, along with those special moments that still make the hairs on the back of the neck tingle. Nothing can re-capture the vivid personal memories and if we had asked one hundred people for their favourite moments and games, the list would be varied and endless.
The Big Book of Griffin Park was produced to mark the life of Griffin Park. With the final game having now been played, it has been updated to include record of the final two seasons. There will be a limited edition print run of this new book.
The new version includes the final two seasons at our proud old stadium – featuring photographs and memories from the club’s stunning 5-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday that proved to be the last competitive match Bees supporters could attend in person – as well as the last-ever match against Swansea City in the Play-Offs. This lavish 400-page hardback book features hundreds of amazing photographs and stories, as well as personal recollections from some of the heroes who have graced the hallowed pitch. Bees fans can get their names in the book and pre-order a copy. The deadline for names is Monday, 17 August, and more information can be seen here.
