Brentford Programme receives second 19/20 award

Programme Monthly names Bees 'Best in Championship'

13 August 2020

The Club has received a second award for the matchday programme this season. As part of their end of season edition, Programme Monthly has named Brentford's 2019/20 series as the joint-best in the Sky Bet Championship, alongside West London rivals Fulham.

Designed and printed by club partners Curtis Sport, the programme is Edited by Chris Deacon, who replaced Sam Marshall shortly after the beginning of the season in September 2019.

The pair have produced a combined 27 issues this term, including the featured A4 edition for the final league game ever played at Griffin Park. Featured contributors this term have included Dan Long, Rob Jex, Greville Waterman, Nick Bruzon, Ben Burgess and Illustrator Dave Flanagan.

Brentford were awarded a score of 18/20 for this campaign, and were praised for the variety of content in this season's editions. The news comes a few weeks after Premier Progs awarded Brentford the 'Merit Award' for this term.

The author notes: "With this being their final season at Griffin Park, the Brentford programme is full of historical content, much of which is of the highest order.

"Throughout the season the Bees used a series of retro covers, inside 'Cover Story' picks up the theme with relevant coverage of the relevant season.

"Other high-quality parts of this programme include 'Park Life' a two page general Brentford and football column, 'Bee Team', four pages for younger supporters.

"Equally good is the 11 page visitors section, which includes two from a visiting journalist and ends with a Q+A with an away fan. Excellent coverage of the women's team is followed by 'My Brentford Story' from a supporter and right at the end comes 'The Last Word' a general football column."
