What a sad start to the day hearing that an old friend Adrian Beckles has passed away.

Known him through Brentford for 40 odd years. He followed the Bees through thick and thin, seeing him on the terraces around the country, we played a bit of football together in our younger days.

He was one of the nicest persons you could ever meet he had a great sense of humour so he will be greatly missed.

Our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.

RIP Beccles

Terrible news, really good bloke.

Strange to think it’s been a couple of years since we’ve last heard “sit down you paid for your seat” from the row behind, followed by a unique laugh.

I am so shocked by this news. He was about the same age as me!

Sure I saw him just before the Norwich game passing The Globe.

I spent eight happy years working with Adrian at Trico in the early 80’s which then rolled into Saturday and Sunday football through the 80’s and into the 90’s.

Nothing more to say than just a really nice bloke who was great company.

RIP Mr Beckles

Shocking news. A proper Brentford character and top bloke who I've seen at games all over the country since the early 80s. RIP

Known him all of my life, a fellow but older Isleworth boy, I speak to him most weeks at games and had a long chat about the Prem malarkey pre the Leics game. New fans, Prem refs etc, we smashed it.
Oddly he used to fancy my sister, he needed help, a constant in my life and a stand out character, not trying to say we were best mates or owt but someone who was always around, there are quite a few on here who will be in bits today that were close to a very nice bloke.
An inoffensive, kind and proper Bee and his passing is sh*t.

I knew him only by sight but he was always a constant at Brentford. Incredibly sad. RIP

This is an odd question but is there a chance he drove a bus in Southampton in the early 00s?

He did move to Southampton and did drive buses while living down there

Definitely, he lived down there for a while and was indeed a bus driver.

Thanks. In that case, I have a story which I've probably told several times on here but seems fitting to tell again.

I only ever had a handful of interactions with Adrian but this was the first.

In 2002 I was at Uni in Southampton. One afternoon a mate and I were walking along the road in the city centre and I was wearing a Bees top. I think it was a few days before a big promotion game, possibly QPR away. Out of nowhere a bus full of passengers came careering up alongside me and the doors flung open. I looked across at the bus driver who shouted "LOVE THAT SHIRT, LOVE THAT SHIRT, I'LL SEE YOU SATURDAY!" before pulling back into the road and speeding off, both hands not on the steering wheel but doing the 'raise the roof' motion as he shouted "OWUSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" while the passengers looked on in complete bafflement. My mate turned to me and said 'that was one of the greatest things I've ever seen'.

This is so sad. I didn't know him that well like some of you but we bumped into each other regularly at GP and chatted. He always called me 'Trini" cause of my Trinidadian mum and we 'friended' on FB some years ago. Such a nice guy. RIP ❤️
