Brentwood Town FC
Brentwood Town is a club with a very rich history, dating all the way back to the 19th century where they competed several times in the FA cup, Including reaching the Quarter-Finals where the were defeated by eventual winners Blackburn Rovers. In recent times, they have secured two Essex Senior League titles and promotion to the Isthmian Premier Division, although their stint in the Premier Division was short lived, suffering relegation back to the North division in the following season.
Last season, Brentwood Town suffered an indifferent start to the season, being narrowly defeated by Tilbury/Potters Bar Town, while picking up a win against Norwich United and Drawing with Hertford Town. Despite picking up vital wins against AFC Hornchurch, Mildenhall Town and Ware, their topsy turvy form over the course of the season lead to them finishing the season on 46 points, two places above the relegation zone. They will be hoping for a much-improved season this time around.
In our last meeting, we travelled to the Brentwood Centre Arena, where a crowd of 84 saw Brentwood leave with all 3 points in what was a high-pressure match for both sides. A Goal from Tony Stokes’ in the 48th minute being enough to seal all three points for the hosts.
Our complete senior record against Brentwood Town is P8 W4 D2 L2 F14 A7.
