Striker

Pen Pic

Blissett's Bees career spanned from 1987-1993, in which time he scored 79 goals in 233 appearances.

He was a real fans favourite in a fairly direct Brentford team, and won more than his fair share of headers.

In 1992, Blissett was acquitted of GBH after challenging for an aerial ball with Torquay United player John Uzzell in an away game at Plainmoor. It was alleged by Uzzell that Blissett had deliberately elbowed him in the face, fracturing his eye socket, although the court did not agree with this. Blissett has always maintained that the incident was an accidental collision and video evidence of the challenge was deemed to show that Blissett kept his eyes on the ball and furthermore that in jumping to head an aerial ball, a player would typically raise one or both arms to gain height.

Bliss, who now lives in Germany, is a fairly regular visitor back to Griffin Park.
