Match 41
22nd March, 1969
Football League
Brentford v ECFC

Saturday, 22nd March, 1969
Football League
Brentford (away), won 1-0

Thanks to the strength of our rear guard, which had to withstand a great deal of Brentford pressure, and to the opportunism of Fred Binney who scored our goal, we obtained what was only our third win in the last 11 visits to Brentford.

Fred Binney got his goal in the 65th minute when he moved in position to accept a free-kick from John Newman
and then drew the Brentford goalkeeper before shooting in.

David Pleat also had the ball in the Brentford net but this one was disallowed.

John Wingate hit the framework with one of his efforts, but our scoring chances were few and far between, while Brent ford were dictating the mid-field play for long periods.

Team:- Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Parker, Sharples, Newman; Pleat, Bin ney, Wingate, Curtis, Whatling.
