Kane Crichlow Signs For Watford FC Under-23

May 14, 2019

Bermuda’s Kane Crichlow has signed for Watford Football Club Under-23s on a two-year contract.

The club’s announcement said, “Bermuda youth international Kane Crichlow has agreed to sign for the Hornets’ Under-23s on a two-year contract.

“The 18-year-old forward arrives from AFC Wimbledon on July 1, 2019 after a successful trial and will join up with Watford’s development squad ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.

Crichlow – a Bermuda Under-20 international who has also captained his country’s Under-17s and Under-15s – said: “I’m very excited. It’s always been a dream of mine since I was young to sign for a team that’s in the Premier League.

“I’m really excited that it’s finally come true and over the summer I’m going to be doing a lot of work in the gym and training with my national team to make sure I’m ready for pre-season.”

Academy Manager Richard Thomas added: “Kane has shown great attitude combined with top technical quality in his time with us so far, which suggests to us that he can go a long way.

“He’s a very talented player on the ball, he can play off both sides and use both feet very well and he can finish, so we’re expecting him to be very dangerous in the top third of the pitch.

“I’ve seen in the short time I’ve been here that we’ve got some really good players in the building already, so adding to that will freshen up the group and create some more competition, which can only bode well for the Under-23s and the rest of the Academy going forward.”

    Well done on realizing your goal Mr. Critchlow!!! You have done your family and Bermuda proud! I do not wish to know the amount of money you were signed for. That would be rude and shallow. However, I wish to learn the continued heights of achievement you reach through your hardwork and passion for the game.
