League One Brentford are taking a long hard look at a trio of Watford kids with a view to god knows what as the Vicarage Road 'exit door` gets an early greasing ahead of the expected summer clear out.
Versatile full back Theo Angus, tenacious midfielder battler Kurtney Brooks and wideman Andy Yiadom all got a taste of reserve team action whilst on trial with the Bees in today`s 0-0 draw with Gillingham under the watchful eye of Andy Scott`s scouting team.
And it was a full 90 minute run out for both Brooks and Yiadom at the Priestfield Stadium - in a Brentford team with the experienced heads of Sam Saunders, Ben Strevens and former Hornet Lionel Ainsworth - whilst young defender Angus was withdrawn after 58 minutes.
Having already seen promising Academy winger Billy Gibson have a trial at Championship rivals Leicester City, Rob Kiernon head north of the border with Killie, Young Lewis pack his bags for Hereford and, of course, Marvellous Marvin Sordell get rave reviews at Tranmere, the trial at Griffin Park will be further proof that the Watford Academy continues to churn out some rather fancied talent.
Here at VitalWatford we admit we are not particularly hot on the works of both Yiadom and Angus but young Kurtney Brooks is a player we have seen and have been impressed with. He`s even got a first team squad number and a subs appearance for Malky Mackay`s men under his belt - even if it was only 10 minutes in extra time in a League Cup game at Barnet!
Whilst he has not made the same progress as the likes of Michael Bryan, Piero` (oooo), Dale Bennett or Matthew Whichelow, engine room general Brooks appeared to be well respected by the Academy team at Vicarage Road (and boy we know how Malky loves a midfielder!) so it`s a bit of surprise to see him out on trial.
Clearly, Brentford boss Andy Scott didn`t fancy a look at Hornets Man of Mystery Jure Travner then???
