Brentford capture Crawley defender
Andy Woodman
Goalkeeper Woodman faces increased competition
Brentford boss Ron Noades has taken his number of summer signings to six after capturing Jay Lovett from Crawley Town in a 75,000 transfer.

The 22-year-old defender, who previously played for Sussex County League side Saltdean United, was in the side that met the Bees in a pre-season friendly last week.

Paul Smith, 20, also played for Crawley that night and the 6`4 goalkeeper subsequently joined the Second Division outfit on a free transfer.

Smith will provide added competition to first choice goalkeeper Andy Woodman.

The Bees have already dipped into the non-league market and snapped up 20-year-old Eddie Hutchinson from Sutton United for 75,000.

Brentford already have a successful recent track record of signing non-league players.

The likes of Darren Powell (Hampton), Lloyd Owusu (Slough Town) and Martin Rowlands (Farnborough Town) all came from the semi-professional ranks.
