With the season in full flow November saw us pick up nine points from five First Team matches and we had all sorts happening on and off the field. Here are some of the standout moments from November 2020 during our promotion-winning season.
Diego Maradona tributes
The football world was shocked in November as we all learned of the passing of one of the game’s all-time greats, Diego Maradona. The Argentine, who lit up football with his terrific skill and character, passed away at the age of 60. Prior to our match with Queens Park Rangers, the Brentford Community Stadium remembered the special talent ahead of kick-off.
London Irish play first home game at our new home
Our friends at London Irish played their first match at our new home on 29 November as they took on Leicester Tigers. They picked up a 22-9 home win with Curtis Rona grabbing the game’s first try.
Karleigh Osborne features on the Football Black List
Brentford Women’s FC Head Coach Karleigh Osborne was named on the Football Black List – an initiative celebrating the most influential Black people in the British game.
A League Two title-winner during his playing days at Brentford, Karleigh has been Brentford Women’s Head Coach since 2018. He joined the likes of Marcus Rashford, Tyrone Mings, Troy Deeney, Wilfried Zaha and Chloe Morgan on the 2020 list.
The Football Black List, founded in 2008 by sports journalists Leon Mann and Rodney Hinds, highlights positive influencers from the Black community in the sport.
Our final match in November was well worth the wait as we welcomed our West London neighbours, Queens Park Rangers, to our new home. The 2-1 win extended our unbeaten run to seven games with Vitaly Janelt and Ivan Toney grabbing the goals on a chilly evening.
