24 May 2021

Aaron Pressley has been named Brentford B Player of the Year following an impressive 2020/21 campaign.

The 19-year-old, who joined the young Bees from Aston Villa in January 2020 has been in fine scoring form during his first full season with the Club having found the net on 19 occasions.

Aaron made 26 appearances for the B Team this year, netting in the final ever match at Griffin Park in a London Senior Cup win over Erith Town. He also went on to score against under-23 sides from Arsenal and Chelsea as well as find goals against non-league teams like Maidenhead United and Aldershot Town.

The forward also made his First Team debut this season against Rotherham United away from home as The Bees won 2-0 in the Sky Bet Championship. He then went on to feature late against Nottingham Forest before making his Emirates FA Cup debut against Leicester City at the Brentford Community Stadium.

This season’s award was chosen by the B Team staff, and Brentford B Head Coach Neil MacFarlane believes Aaron fully deserves the accolade. He explained: “We’ve seen terrific strides from Aaron and he’s been a real catalyst for us at the top end of the pitch. He can be hugely satisfied with his first full season with us and it’s about coming back next year with that same determination and drive to keep getting better.”
