Chic Brodie

Position

Goalkeeper

Pen Pic

Chic signed for Brentford in 1963 and went on to make over 200 appearances for the club. His career was cut short in peculiar fashion when he collided with a dog (possibly a Jack Russell) that had run onto the pitch at Colchester United.

He was stretchered off and never played again - commenting "the dog might have been a small one but it happened to be a solid one".

The incident was captured on TV camera and thus has a place in football folklore.

A guy in the Master Robert Pub in Heston tells the same story about Chic Brodie, everytime I go in there, which is about twice a year....
