Goalkeeper signs on until start of 2014

Goalkeeper Liam O’Brien has signed a new short-term Brentford FC contract.

The goalkeeper joined The Bees in August on a three-month deal.

He has now signed a new two-month extension that will keep him at Griffin Park until mid-January.

Liam, who turns 22 at the end of the month, has yet to make a First Team appearance for Brentford but has been an unused substitute on seven occasions.

He has played one game for Brentford’s Development Squad in the Under-21 Professional Development League.

Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Sporting Director, said: “Liam has made a strong impression on and off the pitch in the time he has been at the Club.

“He has impressed Goalkeeper Coach Simon Royce and Manager Uwe Rösler.

“We have no issue with Liam being on the bench or starting as first choice goalkeeper if needed.

“We are close to finalising a move for Jack Bonham to go out on loan.

“This will give Jack a chance to play senior football and gain experience.

“As such, we have extended Liam’s deal and we can look to review it again in January.”

Liam started his professional career at Portsmouth and moved to Barnet in 2011.

In three seasons with the North London club he played 22 games.

He left Barnet at the end of last season, when they were relegated from the Football League, and joined Brentford after a successful trial.

Liam spoke to Bees Player after signing his new contract; see an interview with the goalkeeper later today.
