During the 1992–93 English football season, Brentford F.C. competed in the Football League First Division (second tier of English football) for the first time since their relegation from in 1954.

Season summary[edit]

The 1992–93 season started promisingly for Brentford and by Boxing Day 1992, Brentford went 10th in Division One and were just three points short of the playoff zone. Holder was voted Manager of the Month for the division,[1] and there was much speculation as to whether Brentford could mount a challenge for promotion to the Premiership. But a sharp decline set in and defeat in the final game of the season condemned "The Bees" to relegation to Division Two. Holder was sacked three days later.[2]

Kit[edit]

The 1992-93 kit was to be made by Hummel International and the kit sponsor was Dutch airline KLM.
