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

Hess open to offers (but won't apply)

Dover Athletic boss Andy Hessenthaler has admitted that he`d hope the non league club wouldn`t stand in his way should Watford come a knocking….

…but the former Hornet and ex Gillingham boss insisted he won`t be sticking an application in for the vacant managers job at Vicarage Road.

Oh no, the Watford board would have to approach him.

The local rags in and around the white cliffs of Dover, reckon Hessenthaler has 'played down rumours` linking him with Watford with BBC Radio Kent and the Kent Messenger in particular showing off their meddling sides.

However, Hessenthaler - who topped a recent VitalWatford poll quizzing fans on whom they`d want in the hotseat - told the Kent Messenger "The way I would put it is, if we had a player that had a chance of going to a higher league club, we would not stand in their way".

He added "It would be rude to talk about another job, but it is no secret that I would like to return to management in the Football League".

Very shrewd Mr Hessenthaler, Very shrewd indeed.

Ok, so the undisputed 'king of the shoestring` also added that he`s "not spoken to Watford" and some other guff about his caretaker backing him in "having a job to do at Dover" but we`d never let that get in the way of a good story.
