15% rise to watch the Bees in the Championship

The club have today announced a 15% increase in season ticket prices for the 2014/15 campaign, which will see Brentford battle it out in the Championship. Standing in the Ealing Rd terrace will now cost fans under £15 a match if they buy their season ticket before June 16th.

While promotion was always inevitably going to lead to a cost hike, Chief Executive Mark Devlin tweeted that he believed the increase was “fair” and he hoped to achieve “a minimum of 5000” sales.

Devlin also pressed home the need for the club to generate money in order to comply with new financial fair play rules as well as increasing their fanbase.

Fan reaction on has been largely positive, with the prices remaining favourable compared to other teams in the league. Juniors will also be able to watch a whole season of Championship football for only £80 whereas standing on the Ealing Rd terrace will now cost £27 on the day – a rise of £5 on this season.

Donaldson happy to wait for deal

This season’s top scorer and fan favourite Clayton Donaldson has maintained that he will strive to get the best deal he can get from the club as his contract nears its end, according to getwestlondon.

The striker said “I’m 30 now and not getting any younger, so this next deal is really important for me personally. The club respect that, so I will take my time and they will take theirs.”

Bees in Sordell link

The post-promotion transfer rumour mill has already sprung into action today after footballleagueworld.co.uk reported that Brentford are tracking Bolton striker Marvin Sordell.

The England u-21 player is currently on loan at Charlton and scored a hattrick in their most recent outing and would certainly bolster the Bees’ attacking options. Speaking to the BBC, Mark Warburton warned against replacing people “for the sake of it”.

Logan’s run may continue

According to football365, defender Shaleum Logan may extend his loan spell at Aberdeen past the end of the season. It is thought that a motivating factor may be Aberdeen’s flexibility enabling him see to his children in Manchester regularly.

With the arrival of Alan McCormack, Logan struggled to gain first team football with the Bees before his move in January. With the Championship likely to make even more demands of his squad, Warburton will likely have the final decision.
