West Ham United v Brentford | All You Need To Know

Previous Meetings…

Monday’s game will be just the sixth Premier League fixture between the two clubs, with Brentford having won home and away against the Hammers in their debut Premier League campaign – and then repeated that feat last season with a braces of 2-0 successes.

David Moyes’ side did score a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup on 7 January last year, but Brentford added to their tally of Premier League victories over the Hammers by triumphing 3-2 in west London earlier this season.

Prior to that, the most-recent meetings came back in the 1992/93 season, when both clubs were in the old First Division (now the Championship).

West Ham were promoted that season, having drawn 0-0 at Brentford’s old Griffin Park stadium before thrashing the Bees 4-0 at the Boleyn Ground, where Martin Allen, Peter Butler, Trevor Morley, and Kevin Keen got the goals for Billy Bonds’ Hammers.

Our first-ever meeting came all the way back on 11 September 1897, when Thames Ironworks FC, as we were then known, won a London League fixture 1-0 at the Memorial Grounds, with Scotsman Jimmy Reid getting the only goal of the game in front of 1,000 spectators.

VAWG Awareness…

West Ham United will join forces with the Metropolitan Police, London Stadium and Brentford to help raise awareness of VAWG (Violence against Women and Girls) at our Premier League home fixture against the Bees on Monday.

An information point near Bridge Two will provide supporters with the opportunity to pop in and learn more about VAWG and how to report specific issues linked to this topic.

As an equity leader and proud recipient of the PLEDIS – the Premier League’s advanced award for the Club’s ongoing dedication and commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion – West Ham United wants to make sure it is doing all it can to ensure the matchday experience at London Stadium is a safe space for supporters and the wider community.

In addition to the information point, the stadium’s big screen will also carry messaging to assist with the campaign.

PC Andy Sheldon, the dedicated football officer for West Ham matches, said: “We want to see and hear how women and girls can feel safer in the vicinity of London Stadium.

“It could be suggestions like improving lighting in certain areas or cutting foliage.

“While this is aimed at women and girls, we are also welcoming members of the local community to also provide suggestions.”
