Scott starts Brentford clear-out

Brentford boss Andy Scott has released goalkeeper Simon Brown, defender Craig Pead and striker Charlie Ide and plans more changes in the close season.

He told BBC London 94.9: "I have made those three available and not offered a new contract to Lewis Dark.

"I will be seeing several other players on Wednesday and will be telling them what I think their role is, if any, at the club.

"I've got my budget and it is important I get the right players in."


After Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Stockport, Scott added: "I have got to be very astute in what I do during the summer.

"I can't be responsible for putting out performances like that and hopefully when I get my players in that won't happen.

"That defeat wasn't bad luck, it was bad players playing badly and leaves a sour taste in the mouth for the summer.

"However it confirms everything I knew about some of the players I've got here which is that they are not good enough on a consistent basis.

"Although it will be a hard summer and I'll have this taste in my mouth for a long time, it is probably better like that."

Brown and Pead joined the Bees last summer, and Pead was named in the Professional Footballers' Association's League Two team of the year, while Ide had come up through the club's junior ranks.
