Woody Welcomes

Woody Welcomed AFC Bournemouth

I have to say the Bournemouth fans were very friendly.  Woody welcomes began in the pub before the match this time, Woody introduced himself to the away fans and then decided to sit with them and tell them all about his beloved Bees.  The Bournemouth fans were very humble and despite the distance they had travelled they were certain of defeat.

Woody welcomed Nick who is a true Cherry and also works for Bournemouth FC. There was some friendly banter and lots of hugging during the shirt exchange.  Nick too seemed certain of a loss, I think we need to pop down to Bournemouth and show them the magic of positive thinking.  

It was a cold night and Woody put his Bournemouth shirt under his many layers of Brentford tops.  At the end of the season all the shirts are going to be sewn in to a duvet cover for Woody so he can remember this season forever.  

The golden jacket was returned, hooray, and the luck continues.  Woody presented Thomas with some biscuits to refuel, not a cherry in sight though just sweet honey!

Hi Woody,

It was great to meet you yesterday. You are a great example to young football fans and its a lovely thing you do by way of meeting with opposition fans to exchange a shirt with them.

This kind of thing helps to bring football fans together, so well done to you.

We told you we would lose, so for us not the best of days out for us, however, we often say that it's the people we share the day with that keeps us going to games. Meeting you yesterday certainly falls into that category. Well done on the win and keep up the good work you do welcoming other fans to Brentford.

Good luck for the rest…
