Mark Warburton agrees new Brentford deal

1 August 2014

Brentford manager Mark Warburton has signed a new one-year contract at the club.

The new deal comes after Warburton guided Brentford into the second tier of English football for the first time in over 20 years. Sporting director Frank McParland and Warburton's assistant, David Weir, have also signed new one-year rolling deals.

Brentford chairman, Cliff Crown, told the club's website: "The past few months have been brilliant for everyone connected with the club.

"To earn promotion to the Sky Bet Championship was always the aim and to do so in the style we did, breaking points records, winning 19 homes games out of 23 and doing it with games to spare was exhilarating.

"I am delighted we have secured the futures of Frank, Mark and David.

"When they joined forces around six months ago the Club was making great progress." Uwe Rosler left his post as Brentford boss to join Wigan in December and Warburton, then the club's sporting director, was brought in to replace the German. He oversaw the club's promotion from Sky Bet League One, making Brentford one of the most exciting sides to watch in the division.

Crown continued: "Together they have built on those foundations and are looking to crystallise our place in a higher division.

"Brentford FC is now a Championship club continuing to develop on the field and with a new stadium on the horizon.

"Almost 5,000 supporters have already bought Season Tickets and I know that number will rise."

Meanwhile, the Bees have announced the capture of Finland Under-21 defender Daniel O'Shaughnessy on a two-year deal.
