An online music extravaganza, taking inspiration from the BBC’s Desert Island Discs concept, was organised at the beginning of December by Brentford FC Community Sports Trust. Brentford player Josh Dasilva, Trust participants and Trust CEO Lee Doyle were among those to take part. The evening, which was hosted by BBC sports journalist Phil Parry, included tracks such Lionel Ritchie “All Night Long” and Ben Howard’s “Keep Your Head up” from Josh and Lee.
Along with the Brentford midfield man, a young carer from the Trust's Young Carers project, a participant from the girls’ football programme and two Trust volunteers described the tracks that shaped their identity and reflected their dreams and future ambitions.
