IF next season starts in September and IF fans are allowed in (though I doubt it very much) how about a friendly versus Exeter on Sat 29 August, which would commemorate both clubs entering the English Football League and also for our fans to say goodbye to Griffin Park.

I’ve had the website for a couple of years but life keeps getting in the way of regular writing.

Alongside Coventry City they took their place in an enlarged top division. The competition re-started in September 1919, and Brentford finished 15th, with Portsmouth top.

Expanding the Football League was the brainchild of Charles ‘Chas’ Sutcliffe. He was a prominent member of the League’s Management Committee. Sutcliffe had instigated promotion and relegation. Prior to their introduction, two-legged ‘Test Matches’ decided any movement between the two divisions a Victorian version of the play-offs

And there is me thinking Queenie died in 1901 lol

:fishing:


Edit: unless it started more than 18 years before in which case apology accepted

wikipedia said:
Automatic promotion and relegation for two clubs was introduced in 1898 when the previous system of test matches between the bottom two clubs of the First Division and the top two clubs of the Second Division was brought into disrepute when Stoke and Burnley colluded in the final match to ensure they were both in the First Division the next season.

The 'Test Matches' were a Victorian version of the play-offs. :thetruth:
