Left winger Matty Brazier moved from Loftus Road to Craven Cottage for £65,000 in March 1998. He made his debut in a narrow win over York City at Bootham Crescent and scored the equaliser against Preston North End on his first start a fortnight later. His stay in SW6 was brief as he struggled to establish himself following Kevin Keegan’s decision to manage England and, after a successful loan spell with Cardiff City, he moved to Welsh capital for £100,000 in July 1999. He made 72 appearances for the Bluebirds before returning to London and signing for Leyton Orient on a free transfer in January 2002.
Brazier called time on his playing career in 2004 after two years at Brisbane Road and tragically died in February 2019, aged just 42, following a courageous three-year fight against non-hodgkin follicular lymphoma.
