Brentford B in Focus: Aaron Pressley

A look at the young striker ahead of the new campaign

20 August 2020

Aaron Pressley joined Brentford B midway through the 2019/20 season from Aston Villa’s Under-18 set up.

The young striker has a physical presence and has adapted well to life with The Bees, putting in some strong displays whilst leading the line for Neil MacFarlane’s side.

Unfortunately for Aaron, the early curtailment of the season prevented the youngster from continuing what had been some promising form for the side. Prior to the lockdown Aaron feature for the side six times, with three starts and three appearances from the bench.

Though he may not have been able to get a great deal of minutes under his belt, Aaron made a significant impact with three goals and one assist during his time so far.

His first goal came in what was a disappointing 2-1 defeat to PC39 Academy, but the next two came in excellent fashion when he netted both goals against AFC Wimbledon in a 2-2 draw which eventually saw the young Bees pick up a penalty shootout win.

With a full pre-season with Brentford ahead of a new campaign, Aaron will be looking to keep up that scoring form to continue his development under Neil MacFarlane.
