Under EFL rules for behind closed doors matches each club can have ten ‘Directors¬†and Executives’ at each home and away game. After the 3-0 win at Reading, club photographer Mark D Fuller captured the moment Brentford’s ten representatives gave an ovation to the victorious Bees.

From left to right they are Donald Kerr (Deputy Chairman), Jon Varney (CEO), Rasmus Ankersen (Co-Director of Football), John Herting (Associate Director), Nity Raj (Director), Cliff Crown (Chairman), Monique Choudhuri (Non- Executive Director), Phil Giles (Co-Director of Football), Stewart Purvis (Non-Executive Director) and Eddie Rogers (Associate Director). The other Non-Executive Director on the board, Mike Power, was not able to be present.
