Brentford's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Terry Evans has been voted Brentford's all-time cult hero by Football Focus viewers.

Evans won with 47% of the vote, ahead of fellow Brentford favourites Terry Hurlock and Dean Holdsworth.

TERRY HURLOCK: 28%

A mountain of a man.
Brian Jackson

Mr 100%.
Tony Girdler

Signed from non league, a leader, strong tackler would die for the cause, underrated, could play a fair bit which he was never given enough credit for, also one of last true "real" hard men to play football.
Mick Lynott

The beast of Griffin Park - for such a hard man he had such a squeaky voice. But seriously, he was a god in the '80s, never pulled out of any tackle and most of the time he won.
Colin Smith

A never-say-die tough tackler who drove the team on. Went on to play in the old first division, played for Glasgow Rangers and represented England.
Dennis Smith

TERRY EVANS: 47%

Inspirational captain.
Brian Jackson

Colossus in the middle of defence and was captain of the team in the promotion season. Not big on finesse but I witnessed him heading the ball from box to box on more than one occasion. One of the only Brentford players carried off the pitch on supporters' shoulders when we beat Fulham 4-0. His injury in the first game in the old division one had him sidelined for the rest of that year and in my opinion that was the reason we went straight back down to Div 2.
Tony Kearney

If you cut him he'd bleed red and white. Huge centre back, who even after scoring against us for Wycombe, our fans still sung 'There's only one Terry Evans'. A true legend.
Richard George

He was a giant for the club, he would die for the cause. If it was in the air, Terry would get it - he never missed one.
Colin Smith

DEAN HOLDSWORTH: 25%

For scoring 76 goals and being the player that we sold on for the most money ever (Wimbledon paid us nearly 750k for him I think)
Sarah Clelland

Our top goal scorer in 1991/92 season which is probably the greatest in many years of supporting Brentford. Deano helped us win Division 3 and win promotion to Division 1 (the leagues changed names). Need I say more?
Darren Cushway

Legendary goal scorer.
M Kerrigan

Charismatic and a great goal scorer for Brentford. Won us promotion.
Ian Robinson

Scored 38 goals for us the season we won the old division three. Made a huge contribution to the best season at Brentford I have ever experienced. Quick and skilful. My hero when I was a kid.
Paul Claxton
