Biography

On Tuesday 19th July, Fulham announced the signing of David Button from Brentford for an undisclosed fee.

The Bees’ first choice stopper agreed a three year deal at Craven Cottage, with a Club option for a further 12 months.

After coming through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur and taking in numerous loan spells – notably at Shrewsbury Town and Plymouth Argyle – Button signed permanently for Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2012, before moving across London to Brentford a year later.

In his debut season he played 45 times as our local rivals finished second in League One to ensure they’d be playing second-tier football again for the first time in more than two decades. Only champions Wolverhampton Wanderers conceded fewer goals that term.

The following campaign things got even better for Button and his teammates, as they exceeded all expectations to finish in a Championship Play-Off spot, only to lose out to Middlesbrough over two legs.

27-year-old Button has been one of Brentford’s most consistent performers during his time at Griffin Park, and he departs the club having made 141 appearances in just three seasons.
