Brentford Football Club was devastated by the death of Technical Director Robert Rowan at the age of 28 on Monday, 12 November.
Robert had been with Brentford since late 2014 and was appointed as the Club’s Head of Football Operations in the summer of 2015. As well as managing the day to day football operations at Brentford’s Jersey Road Training Ground, Robert oversaw the strategic direction of Brentford B - the Club’s elite squad of players aged 17 to 21, before taking on the role of Technical Director.
Robert was a warm, funny, and intelligent man whose sudden death has rocked all those connected with the Club. In his memory, we are raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young which aims to save young lives and to help those affected by the sudden cardiac death.
