We continue this afternoon with some archive matches from League One, with West Londons Brentford. The Bees are remarkably well served on YouTube, with an excellent archive of matches available on this outstanding website. We have highlights from three matches followed by a round-up of an FA Cup run, kicking off all the way back to 1942 and the London War Cup final at Wembley against Portsmouth. We then have two matches from each end of the 1970s – when television companies had to feature some matches from the lower divisions each season for contractual reasons – starting with a home match against Aldershot from August 1971, and followed with another home match from 1979 against Watford. Finally, we have a round-up of the clubs FA Cup run from the 1988/89 season, when they reached the quarter-finals of the competition and faced a daunting trip to Anfield to play Liverpool.
