Brentwood Town depart from Ryman Premier with 3-0 defeat to Farnborough

Saturday 23rd April
By Martin Voller

Brentwood Town’s year-long stay in the Ryman Premier Division came to a disappointing end with a 3-0 defeat to Farnborough at The Rushmoor Community Stadium.

Tuesday 19th April

Already-relegated Brentwood made their longest trip of the league season on Tuesday night and made promotion-chasing Bognor Regis Town work hard for a win that kept alive the home side’s championship hopes.  

Brentwood had some good chances in the first half but pressure from The Rocks saw them take a 13th minute lead through Jason Prior and they increased the lead two minutes into the second half with a goal by Connor Tighe.


Some good saves by Ollie Bowles kept Brentwood in the game and at the start of stoppage time they pulled a goal back when Ryan O’Rawe tapped in Andy Freeman’s cross. In a frantic finish, Bognor grabbed a third goal through Snorre Nilsen.
