Joe Hardy joined Brentford B from Manchester City during the 2016/17 campaign. He signed a three-year deal at Griffin Park and immediately began challenging for a starting place up front.
"Challenging ourselves is the only way we're going to get better"
19-year-old Joe, who hails from The Wirral, joined City's academy as a young teenager before progressing up to Under-18 level.
It was there that he flourished, netting 12 goals in 11 starts for the team and impressing Brentford enough to bring him in before the end of the 16/17 season.
After joining The Bees, Joe put on record his thanks for the work done by former Brentford interim Head Coach Lee Carsley to help him in his career while the former Blues man was leading the academy there.
