U's to face Premier League side

23 May 2024

We can confirm another pre-season friendly set to take place this summer, with the U’s making the trip to Premier League side Brentford for a behind closed doors match on Saturday, 20th July.

The Bees have enjoyed a stellar rise up the divisions in recent years, reaching the promised land of the Premier League just seven years after turning out in League One, and have gone from strength to strength in the first tier under Thomas Frank, with 13th, 9th and 16th place finishes seeing them avoid any relegation trouble in each of their three seasons so far.

Although the U's have faced Brentford as recently as January 2024 with a 3-1 defeat for the Under-18s, this will be the first first team meeting between the two sides since July 2009, with goals from Moses Emmanuel, Nathan Elder and Leon Legge securing a 3-1 victory for the then-League One side over the then-Isthmian Premier Division side.

Although this match is behind closed doors, we have requested to stream it and will post an update shortly.
