Ron Cooper

Ron Cooper has been supporting Brentford since the late 1950s, having been introduced to Brentford by a Scout leader (Ron’s involvement with the scouts has spanned some 60 years). Initially, he was “a bit embarrassed” to admit that he supported Brentford, but now all his friends “realise his commitment to the team.” Ron has been a board member of the supporters’ organisation Bees United for several years, and has had certain insights into challenges and changes that the club has faced over the years accordingly.

Ron attended his first game in 1962, parking his bike in the front garden of a neighbouring garden for “thruppence”. His two younger brothers soon joined him, and now his son and two of his grandchildren are also supporters.
