26th July 2011- Friendly, Brentford 0 Watford 0

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.

guardianWatford do things differently. Appointing Aidy Boothroyd started it. He came untainted with failure and had his own ideas. After instant success and equally instant fall, their faith is undimmed. So is his. “I’m blessed for talent,” he said after victory put them top of the table for a few hours, “blessed now with five strikers.”
