'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Watford will go from 'Hoof' to Youth - Aidy

The Championship will see a new look Watford and a Watford 'doing it for the kids` next season after boss Aidy Boothroyd vowed to "give youth it`s head" and draft in some of the next crop of youngsters.

The Hornets might have been taught a footballing lesson by the experienced heads and weary legs of Hull`s veterans in the Play-offs but if Boothroyd sticks by his promise to play a new style of football then hey, Age Concern won`t be getting a ring from the VitalWatford boys.

Aidy Boothroyd told the official site "We need to take a good look at ourselves but we`ll be alight because we`ve got a nice young foundation to build on".

The gaffer added "I need to have assessment of players we have got and see where we can raise some money and perhaps give youth it`s head". We`ve got Tamas [Priskin], Theo [Robinson], Al Bangura, [John Joe] O`Toole, [Lionel] Ainsworth and [Scott] Loach - They have all got a really good chance.

Goalkeeper Loach and striker Theo Robinson have both proved themselves more than handy in the football league this season on loan with Bradford and Hereford respectively whilst Jordan Parkes (Barnet) has shown he can handle the rough and tumble out on loan at Barnet.

And let`s not forget there`s a reserve team packed with pace and spritely exuberance with striker Liam Henderson banging in goals for fun and wingers Billy Gibson and Lewis Young (Ashley`s brother) eager to step-up.

Giving the young players a chance might pay off. It might give the senior players a good kick up the arse. I think thay need it.
