Dare, Billy I have been a Brentford fan since 1953 and remember Billy Dare from that time. As a homage to Billy Dare I have a replica shirt for Brentford 2019/20 final season at Griffin Park with Billy Dare 9 on the shirt as at the time a new striker had not been signed so who better to remember. As it turned out Ollie Watkins did us proud but the shirt is worn with pride!
