Fallen Brentford star Charlie Ide has signed for Conference side Grays Athletic after being released by the Bees.
The youngster burst onto the scene two years ago under former Bees boss Scott Fitzgerald and turned in some impressive performances as the Bees failed to avoid relegation fron League One.
However, Ide was played out of position under Terry Butcher last season, then struggled to get into the side when Butcher left and Andy Scott took over.
He had a spell on loan at Grays, but was told he was free to go when he returned to Griffin Park.
Scott made it clear this summer in releasing former favourites like Ide and John Mousinho that he needs players who are ready to come in and do a job rather than waiting on players to develop who have already been at the club a few years, as he plots a return to League One.
