On This Day in History: 30 May

A look back at this day in Brentford history

30 May 2020

Notable Matches

Brentford 2 Portsmouth 0 – London War Cup Final, 1942

Birthdays

Roy Hart (1933); 2 appearances, 0 goals

A centre-half who came through as a youth at Brentford, Hart played twice towards the end of the 1954/55 season. The Bees won both those games against Northampton Town and Watford on the way to an 11th-placed finish in Division Three South. At the end of the season, Hart departed Griffin Park never to play a professional game again.

Jake Reeves (1993); 47 appearances, 1 goal

Released by Tottenham Hotspur as a 16-year-old, Jake signed his Brentford scholarship in the summer of 2009. His debut came on the final day of the 2010/11 season during a 4-4 draw at Huddersfield Town. Jake was in and around, but never a permanent fixture in, the first team over the next three seasons.

After ten and 11 appearances, Reeves' best season came as we won promotion in 2014. He played 25 times that campaign, netting a stunning maiden professional goal during an FA Cup First Round victory over Staines Town in November. Jake, who was released at the end of August 2014, is now closing in on 250 appearances following spells with Swindon Town, AFC Wimbledon, and currently Bradford City.
