The Big Match Preview - Brentford

18 July 2016

All you need to know ahead of the first home pre-season friendly on Tuesday night (k.o. 7.45pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs Brentford
Tuesday 19th July 2016, k.o. 7.45pm
Adams Park, HP12 4HJ
Referee: Mr Mick Russell

The boys are back in town... and it'll be all white on the night.

Gareth Ainsworth's men return to Adams Park for the first time since the end of April to take on Championship side Brentford in their first home pre-season friendly, having impressed in the 1-1 draw against Le Havre in France last Tuesday.

The Chairboys' preparations for the new league campaign are shaping nicely with new signings Dayle Southwell, Myles Weston, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Paris Cowan-Hall integrating excellently into their new surroundings and looking to make an impression when they step out on home soil for the first time.

The squad is also likely to feature a handful of trialists who are keen to catch the eye against a Bees side who could include former Wycombe loan stars Sam Saunders and Nico Yennaris.

Wanderers - who have a number of ex-Brentford players in their ranks - will be wearing their all-new white change strip, which is available to purchase - along with the home kit, trainingwear and leisurewear - from the newly refurbished shop at the stadium.

Tickets
Wanderers fans will be accommodated in the Beechdean Stand and the terrace for this fixture - please note the Origin Family Stand and Frank Adams Stand will not be open unless there is sufficient demand for tickets.

Brentford have been given an initial allocation of 1,800 tickets in the Panache Stand behind one goal (all seated, under cover with unrestricted views).

Tickets for all fans will be available on the gate at no extra charge.

Programme

This 2-in-1 edition features new signing Adebayo Akinfenwa on the cover, with a column from Gareth Ainsworth inside, a summary of the biggest news from over the summer months, a report and photos from the friendly in France and an introduction to both clubs.

The programme folds out into a giant poster of Luke O'Nien and Paul Hayes modelling the new O'Neills kits, which is ideal for autographs.

Under the new name of 'Parklife', the programme will be available to purchase from the shop, main reception and turnstiles.
