Date of birth
Simon Andersson joined Brentford B from Swedish side Halmstad on 31 August 2018, signing a three-year contract.
"There is an element of rivalry, but we help each other to get better"
The young stopper progressed quickly through the ranks at Halmstad and he was, before his arrival at Griffin Park, part of the First Team squad at the Swedish second tier side.
He was promoted from the Under-19 squad just a few days after his 17th birthday. Simon already has over 15 youth caps for Sweden and was the first choice keeper for them at the 2018 European Under-17 Championships, held in England.
He made his debut for the squad in a 1-0 win over SC Freiburg while on tour with Brentford B in Switzerland. He went on to play in the team's first competitive domestic match, a 4-0 win over CB Hounslow United in the Middlesex FA Senior Challenge Cup.
