Gavin Mahon made his final Watford appearance in this game over three and a half years after his penultimate one. His last competitive appearance was on 1st Dec 2007 in the 2-1 home defeat by Burnley. He then joined QPR, initially on loan, and played over 50 times for them. They released him at the end of the 2010/11 season. As he was without a club Sean Dyche allowed Mahon to train with us during the 2011/12 pre-season and he came on during this game as a second half substitute. He eventually signed for Notts County.
Watford fielded former captain Gavin Mahon and a trialist left back during tonight’s 0-0 draw at Brentford.
