‘100% certain he is leaving’ – Plenty of Brentford fans question striker’s future at the club



Plenty of Brentford fans have looked into the future of striker Ollie Watkins, with many believing the player will leave this coming summer.

Initially starting his career with Exeter City, Torquay born striker Watkins spent 13 years with The Grecians, developing through the club’s various youth sides before spending four seasons in the first team.

His spell in League Two saw him gradually find his goalscoring form, netting 16 goals in all competitions in what proved to be his fourth and final season with Exeter in the 2016/2017 campaign.

That good form would see him make a move to Brentford, where he would be instantly handed a chance to show his worth in the Championship.

11 goals during his debut season saw Watkins continue as a regular starter, beating his opening season scoring tally by one goal in the following campaign.

After developing well in the Championship, the 24-year-old has since gone on to become one of the most in-form strikers in the league, netting an impressive 20 goals in 31 league games this season as things stand.

With a standstill in football at present due to the recent worldwide events, Brentford fans will be hoping Watkins can maintain his form through to the end of the season and gain The Bees a play-off place.

Looking into the striker’s form and his potential future, Football League World’s Ben Crump quizzed Brentford fans via Facebook group BRENTFORD FC LOYAL, asking: “Do you think we can hold on to Ollie Watkins this summer?” – and below are some responses…
