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

Football over Family for Sadler

New Watford left back, Matt Sadler has admitted his overwhelming desire to play regular first team football outweighed a life on easy street with family and friends after leaving boyhood club Birmingham City for the Hornets.

Sadler, 22, has only played 7 times for Birmingham this season, despite notching up 50+ appearances in recent years for the Blues, told the official City website "Footballing-wise it was an easy decision because I need to play regular football, but in every other aspect of my life with my family and friends etc being here [City] it was obviously a lot more difficult".

And the ex England youth captain reckons he`s made a good career move with Aidy Boothroyd the inspiration behind him choosing the Hornets over a hatful of other championships scrapping it out for his signature.

"Watford are a good club and they are in a decent position and challenging for promotion...When I met the manager he [Aidy Boothroyd] made me feel as though Watford is where I should be playing my football".

Doesn`t look at all rosy for the out-of-contract Jordan Stewart though does it!
