We are all set for tomorrow. The mixture of young and old are ready to take on Hull City.
I believe this game is now a sell out or very close to being a sell out and I urge all our supporters to arrive early to avoid the traffic congestion, parking problems and the queues getting into the ground. The voting for the supporters` "Most Improved Player of the Year" accolade has now finished and we do have a winner. I have also added a trophy for the Players` Player of the Year award and the Chairman will be presenting these trophies at 2.45 tomorrow on the pitch.
This week Luke Muldowney, Jamie Palmer and Josh Lennie have been informed that they will not be getting new contracts for the following season. All three players have done very well, conducted themselves in the right way and I wish them all the very best of luck in their future careers. We will be helping them get fixed up with other clubs.
San Lee is currently on a three month work experience with Sao Paolo in Brazil. He will be playing and training right through the summer and we will discuss his future with him at the end of June when he returns.
Aaron Steele who is a substitute tomorrow has been informed that we will now be taking up his 3rd year on his scholarship scheme. His recent performance at Chelsea in the reserve team was outstanding and I think it would be honest and fair to say as a staff, we have changed our original decision.
Next week Stephen Hunt and Michael Dobson will be going to Lilleshall Training Centre for a week's intensive rehabilitation. Alex Rhodes has yesterday undergone a nose operation.
Hopefully this is a full update on what's happening within your Club.
Now all concentration and focus is on tomorrow's game and ensuring the players give a good account of themselves in front of our supporters. I personally am hoping it will be a special day for everyone involved and of course everybody that supports Brentford Football Club. The players will be coming back out onto the pitch at the end of the game and I sincerely hope that everybody stays off the pitch to allow both sets of players the opportunity of thanking all their supporters for the backing through the season.
Onwards and upwards to The Great Escape.
