A six-man delegation from the Society Board met with directors of Brentford FC for several hours at the end of December, and were informed that the football club board were likely to consider administration this month. The meeting lasted several hours, and was followed by another lengthy meeting of the Bees United representatives only.

As a result of these meetings the Bees United delegates decided to issue a statement supporting the football club board’s decision to appeal for a three year time limit for the Section 106 conditions which have been applied to the planning consent for Griffin Park.

In return Ron Noades committed to raising the necessary working capital that the club needs to continue playing football at Griffin Park throughout the proposed three year period. If the conditions are not "time limited" the club's directors stated they will be unable to gain the funds the club needs to continue trading and will elect to place the club into administration, bringing forward the likelihood of a move to Kingston.

Bees United has taken advice from independent insolvency practitioners about administration.

Bees United would like to emphasise that its immediate aims are to secure a future for the football club and, at the same time, relentlessly endeavour to keep Brentford FC within the heart of our community – where it belongs.
