A lifelong Brentford fan will be watching the first game at the new stadium on her 100th birthday.

Audrey Baker, a Bees fan of 88 years, and her partner Roy Romain have become the first fans to secure a premium seat Brentford Community stadium, ready for the opening next summer.

Audrey is one of Brentford's oldest fans and started attending games at Griffin Park before World War Two.

She is now in line to watch the first at the new stadium in 2020.

Ealing-born Audrey first came to Griffin Park with her father in the 1930’s and lists Dai Hopkins and prolific goal scorer Jack Holliday as her favourite players of yesteryear.

She became Patron of our “Babees”, “Bee Team” and “Juniors” membership schemes, for supporters up to the age of 18, earlier this season.

Her generous two-year investment will help the club develop what they offer for younger fans and attract new supporters.

Audrey has now secured her own space in the club’s history.

They secured their seats for Brentford’s matches from the 2020/21 season onwards in Club 1889, so they can enjoy fine dining and comfort before the match as well as great views of the pitch. And they were the first fans to do so.

Audrey – who will be 100 when she attends the first game at the new stadium – said: “Brentford has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. I wanted to support our younger fans at Griffin Park, but I am looking forward to moving to the new stadium. It was an honour to be the first person to buy a seat and I cannot wait to watch a game there.”

Cliff Crown, Brentford FC Chairman, said: “Audrey has shown her commitment to Brentford and our ambitions by supporting our junior memberships and I am very pleased she is looking after herself as well.

"We believe Hospitality the Brentford Way will be something special and we’re delighted that long-standing fans want to be part of it. I look forward to seeing Audrey and Roy at our first game, and many more - we are counting down the days.”

As our Junior Bees Patron, Audrey was given first sight of our Posh Seats along with Club Partners and existing hospitality purchasers.

Fans that have registered their interest in hospitality at Brentford Community Stadium will be able to see what we have on offer next month.
