Brentford 1889 Heritage Shirt

Brentford 1889 Heritage Shirt

Brentford, in partnership with Bees United, the supporters' trust, has unveiled the 1889 heritage shirt to mark the year the club was established. This special edition shirt is a tribute to Brentford's first-ever kit.

The design was inspired by the original decisions of the Brentford FC founders, who were also members of the Brentford Rowing Club, deciding that the football club would wear claret and blue, mirroring the rowing club's colours.

Historical team photographs reveal a club crest inspired by the Brentford Rowing Club, symbolising the club's origins and its connection to the River Thames through a blue zigzag line on a claret background, alongside the BFC initials.

Brentford's inaugural match was played against Kew FC in November 1889, ending in a 1:1 draw. The club achieved its first significant success by winning the Middlesex Junior Cup in the 1893-4 season.
