Watford training camp party revealed

Watford training camp party revealed

The Watford Observer have revealed the names of those currently on Watford's pre-season training camp in Italy, as well as those who aren't there.

Notable inclusions in the squad include Former Manchester United defender, Reece Brown, who was on loan at Oldham Athletic, Coventry City and Ipswich Town last term and an unnamed trialist goalkeeper.

Also training with the club are Udinese trio, Gabriele Angella, Marco Davide Faraoni and Spaniard, Jaime Romero, who spent part of last term on loan at Granada.

Scholars Daniel Wilks, Geoge Byers and Carl Stewart have all travelled with the first-team squad too.

Defensive duo Tommie Hoban and Nyron Nosworthy are both recovering from injury at home, whilst new signings Javier Acuna and Lewis McGugan will travel out to join Gianfranco Zola's men in northern Italy.

Equally interesting are the names of the players left behind who are fit to train, including Adam Thompson, Lee Hodson, Carl Dickinson and Ross Jenkins.

One has to assume that the futures of those four lie away from Vicarage Road.

With international loan restrictions tightened earlier in the summer, Zola will doubtless be using this training camp as the ideal opportunity to assess the players available to him from Udinese before the final four are chosen.

Full squad as released by The Watford Observer:

Goalkeepers: Jonathan Bond, Dan Wilks (second year scholar) & Trialist goalkeeper.

Defenders: Lloyd Doyley, Joel Ekstrand, Marco Cassetti, Gabriele Angella, Marco Davide Faraoni, Ikechi Anya, Daniel Pudil & Reece Brown.

Midfielders: Jonathan Hogg, Sean Murray, Connor Smith, Luke O'Nien, Almen Abdi, Cristian Battocchio, Jaime Romero, Carl Stewart (first year scholar) & George Byers (second year scholar).

Strikers: Troy Deeney, Fernando Forestieri, Britt Assombalonga, Bernard Mensah & Uche Ikeazu.

Set to join squad: Lewis McGugan & Javier Acuna.

Not included: Diego Fabbrini, Tommie Hoban (due to injury), Nyron Nosworthy (due to injury), Adam Thompson, Carl Dickinson, Lee Hodson Ross Jenkins.
