Brentford Go From Hitting The Bar To Hitting The Bar

23 April 2014 10:16

TWELVE months ago, it was tears and tantrums at Griffin Park, home of Brentford, where on loan Fulham striker Marcello Trotta's last minute penalty miss rebounding off the bar cost Brentford an automatic place in this season's Championship and the club was deflated after their Play Off Final defeat against Yeovil at Wembley two weeks later meaning the Bees would start the 2013/14 campaign in League One.

But twelve months on, Brentford clinched promotion to the Championship with another penalty, this time though, with Trotta on the bench, it was on loan winger Alan Judge who gave the Bees the three points against Preston to see the West London club promoted to the second flight of English football in over 20 years.

It was certainly party time at Griffin Park as the fans celebrated by hitting their own bar as the West London club start the 2014/15 season in the Championship buzzing.
