Damien Francis has been voted Watford Player of the Month for August.
The box-to-box midfielder, who stood out as Watford`s best player for the month with his all-action style of play, is currently Watford`s leading goalscorer after netting against Everton and Manchester United.
The 27-year-old looks Aidy Boothroyd`s best summer signing after signing from Wigan Athletic for £1.5million, and has formed a formidable partnership with Gavin Mahon in Watford`s engine room.
Marlon King, who scored a 25-yard wonder-strike against West Ham, come second with over a fifth of the vote.
Despite only getting on the scoresheet once so far this campaign, The King of Vicarage doesn`t stop working for the Watford cause and it`s only a matter of time before the goals start flowing.
Jay DeMerit came second in our poll with 19% of the vote.
The popular American missed the first half of the season`s opener against Everton but came on at the interval to shore up the defence. JD - despite not being at full fitness - looks Premiership class and is the first-choice central defender.
Danny Shittu came fourth in our poll with 15% of the vote.
Eyebrows were raised when Boothroyd paid QPR a fee that could raise to £3miillion but the man-mountain of a defender has looked at home in the Premiership (well, until Saturday that is!).
