Brentford have added former technical manager Robert Rowan to their squad list for the rest of the season after his death last week at the age of 28.

They’ve allocated him their number five shirt and his name will appear in programs and on their website.

Rowan had been using the Championship club for four decades and has been appointed technical manager.

He died of heart failure and additional tributes will be paid at Saturday’s home match against Middlesbrough.

There will be a minute’s applause before kick-off in his memory.

“Robert’s family, including his wife Suzanne, and friends are invited to the game,” said a club statement.

“The Brentford players will be wearing special black armbands for your sport. There will also be a special matchday programme devoted to the memory of Robert.

“A floral tribute will also be set on Robert’s usual matchday chair for the game against Middlesbrough.”
