Five Brentford supporters have set out on their walk to Hartlepool. The supporters are walking the 286 miles to Hartlepool's Victoria Ground, due to be played on Feb 22nd.

The fans were seen off from Griffin Park this morning by the Brentford first team - who are travelling to Hartlepool for an FA Cup - and reporters from Sky, BBC and ITV.

The supporters are raising money for Bees United, the supporters' trust who now sit on the Brentford board, and the Helen Rollason Cancer Care Centre appeal, a charity raising money for breast cancer research and care. The walkers have already raised over £9000.
