Birthdays

Gary Towse (1952); 5 appearances, 0 goals

Goalkeeper Towse arrived at Griffin Park from Crystal Palace in the summer of 1973. He played five times at the start of the 1973/74 season, keeping a clean sheet on each of his first two starts. His final game saw him concede four times in the opening 17 minutes away at Scunthorpe United. In January 1974, Towse departed to join South African top-flight side Jewish Guild. He returned to England five years later to begin a long association with Folkestone Invicta in a variety of roles, including goalkeeper, outfield player, goalkeeping coach, groundsman and manager of the youth and reserve teams.

Clinton Morrison (1979); 8 appearances, 0 goals

A striker signed on loan from Sheffield Wednesday in March 2012, the Irish international failed to find the net in any of his eight appearances, four of which came from the start. The Bees did win five of those eight games to make a late season charge for the Play-Offs. Perhaps a greater contribution from Morrison to Brentford was the work he did with a young Ollie Watkins while the pair were together at Exeter City between 2014 and 2016.
