Bees United, the Brentford supporters' trust, have advanced further loans to Brentford Football Club to help cash flow through the close season.

The supporters trust made loans of £25,000 in June and £10,000 in July to enable the Club to keep within the overdraft limit imposed by the bank. This brings the total amount advanced to the Club by Bees United to £160,000.

In addition, The Brentford Lifeline Society, a long standing supporters' fund raising organisation has recently contributed £6,250 towards a new mower and has pledged £25,000 towards the improvements to facilities that are currently being undertaken at Griffin Park.

Bees United Chairman, Brian Burgess, said "The stark reality is that the Club needs the cash from the supporters to keep it going at the moment. The start of the new season can't come quickly enough, both in terms of games to watch and income through the turnstiles."
