Did Bradley Walsh play for Brentford FC?

Yes, he did play for Brentford! The comedian and game show host of The Chase was a professional at Griffin Park between 1979 and 1980, also appearing for Barnet on loan in the late 1970s. He did not make a first team appearance but was a regular in the reserves.

Bradley was born on 4 June 1960 in Watford and after leaving Brentford, he played for non-league clubs Dunstable Town, Tring Town, Boreham Wood, and Chalfont St Peter.

He remains a good friend of former team mate Bob Booker.
