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

Bangura given Work Permit

After a mamouth three-month wait, Al Bangura has been granted a work permit which will allow him to remain in the United Kingdom.

Chairman Graham Simpson had this to say following todays moral victory:

'We're very happy, but most of all we are delighted for Al and his family,' said Watford chairman Graham Simpson.

'We always knew we had a strong case and despite our setbacks we knew we had to fight for what we believed to be right for this young man.



'Al will now continue to contribute to our society, which I know he feels a debt of gratitude towards.

'I would like to personally thank all the Watford fans who's backing of Al has been so crucial to moving this forward and securing his immediate future in the United Kingdom.'


Bangura's fate was decided by a panel of six home office members who granted Al his permit on the basis his life was at risk on return to Sierra Leone.

The Hornets legal team will now set to work on how to get the dynamic 19 year-old to stay in the country once his permit has expired.

Let's hope this off-field victory leads to one on the field!
