Irish midfielder Alan Judge continues remarkable record in the Championship

The 27-year-old Dubliner is enjoying an excellent season with Brentford.

IRISH MIDFIELDER ALAN Judge continued his remarkable run in the Championship yesterday, as he scored a penalty in Brentford’s 2-2 draw with Fulham.

The goal means the 27-year-old keeps up his incredible record of being involved in 50% of Brentford’s goals this season.

Of the 28 goals the Championship club have managed, Judge has now scored eight and assisted six.

Despite being capped numerous times at youth level, the Dubliner has yet to win a senior cap for Ireland.

Judge’s fine form saw him win Championship Player of the Month for October, while he has been linked with a move to Premier League clubs, including Leicester and Bournemouth of late.

Speaking to The42 back in October, Judge played down rumours of a Premier League move, saying: “To be honest with you, I just laugh it off… I’ve had a good two or three weeks and had a decent start to the season as well, but I’ve got to continue this form to make sure things happen. But I’m really enjoying life at Brentford at the moment and I’d like to go places with them.”

While Judge has yet to play for Ireland at senior level, he remains a strong contender to be part of the 23-man Euro 2016 panel, having featured regularly in the last few squads.
