Luke Stopforth

Head of Performance Analysis

Luke started his career with Crystal Palace in the Performance Analysis department after completing a bachelor's degree at the University of Chichester and then a master's degree in Cardiff. 

During this time he was also working on his coaching as a football coach at soccer camps for youngsters between the age of six to 18. In 2010, he became the lead analyst of UWIC men's football team before moving to Brentford a year later. 

He joined in June 2011, becoming a First Team Performance Analyst under then then-head-of-department Neil McIlhargey. With Neil moving to Rangers with Mark Warburton in 2015, Luke stepped into the lead role with The Bees and has been in charge ever since.
