Ten years ago today Kevin O'Connor made his debut for Brentford, away at Exeter City in the LDV Vans Trophy.
It's a magnificent achievement to be ten years at any club. After Jamie Bates left I thought it unlikely we would see another Brentford player serve so long, given players tend to move around quickly these days.
To have been captain, lose the armband and then re-gain it shows you the type of player Kevin is. It's great to report he's a really nice fella also. I really hope now he goes on and smashes Ken Coote's record, time is certainly on his side.
