Brentford B Team

Aaron Pressley joins AFC Wimbledon on loan

Young forward heads to League One for the 2021/22 campaign

16 July 2021

Brentford B forward Aaron Pressley has joined Sky Bet League One side AFC Wimbledon on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old, who joined Brentford B in January 2020, had an impressive season in front of goal during the 2020/21 campaign having netted 19 times for Neil MacFarlane's side. Aaron also made his First Team debut last season as a substitute in a 2-0 win over Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship. He then went on to feature against Nottingham Forest before making his Emirates FA Cup debut against Leicester City in January this year.

Aaron arrived at Brentford from Aston Villa after working within the youth setup set up at Villa Park, and he will now head to Plough Lane to continue his development. Marcus Forss, Mads Bech Sørensen and Jaakko Oksanen have all spent time with The Dons in recent seasons to continue their progression in men’s football.

Aaron will link up with Wimbledon from Monday 19 July and could feature for the side when they take on Kingstonian on Tuesday next week.

Discussing Aaron's opportunity to step out on loan, Brentford B Head Coach Neil MacFarlane said: "I think it's a fantastic opportunity for Aaron. We have a great relationship with Wimbledon having seen a number of players step out on loan at the club in recent seasons.

“For Aaron I think it's perfect timing because he was sensational for us last year, not just the number of goals he scored for us, but his performances all round which improved as the season developed. This will be a fantastic test, Wimbledon are a very good club for him, and I know Aaron is really looking forward to it. He has lots of good elements to his game. Like any young player he's looking to improve, and I have no doubts that he can go there and be a success."
