Preston Supporters Group organised the day and the players also got involved wearing hats during their warm up.

John Kelly from the Supporters Group said: “Despite the result it was a brilliant day with nearly 900 North Enders descending on the capital. The atmosphere was brilliant with many Brentford fans commentating on what a great idea Gentry Day is and that it is very unique.

“The players also came out for their warm up wearing bowler hats prior to giving them out to the supporters.”
