Well done, great stuff. I like the fact that we were 22nd the 1st season we entered, then came 6th and now we've won it.

Just goes what investment in youth can achieve.

Well done indeed, half time celebrations on August 21st against Yeovil are now a must, looking at the list of previous young fooballers who have taken part in this tournament is eyewatering, let's just hope we might have unearthed a future England star, What a great start to our season, come on you Seniors, the youngsters have set the bar !!!

P.S. Notice the way everyone is smiling to the camera, except the lad at the very front, who's smiling at the bird in the "Milk It" Tee Shirt. He's certainly got one of the 'qualities' of today's superstar footballers...;)

This is a huge win for Brentford FC and it's youth set up. The NI Milk Cup is a prestigious tournament. Incredible. The young lads should be proud. Take the next step fellas......

This is a fantastic result, and the first step forwards after the take over! I'm sure some of the money Mr Benham has put into the club has been well spent on these guys :sorted:

Well done to everyone involved. It really shows how far the youth set up has come in the last couple of years.
Suddenly the new home shirts look ok..... Well from the front anyway!

I am very proud of the investment we are making in our youth and development players. We are beginning to look like a well organised, forward thinking club.
Well done to everyone involved in this success. I am looking forward to congratulating this team at Griffin Parkat our first home match.

Elite Final second half being shown live on 972 at present, the u19 International final being shown afterwards live. They said "to follow , highlights of Brentford v Everton junior final" but unless its literally just a few seconds they won't have time between the end of one live game and start of the next ....suppose it will either be at half time or at the end just before 10pm. As it all clashes with Olympic Team GB game too its probably best to record it and fast forward through later (unless the Senior Milk cup final is of interest for some reason, of course ... not sure which teams are playing) .....

This tournament was opened by David Moyes, and the little I've watched this evening has been aimed at celebrating the big names in attendance.

As Everton lost, I wonder if they'll just sneak the goals in at the end. :mad1:
