🚨 Rob Edwards appointed new Watford manager

Watford have confirmed the appointment of Rob Edwards as their new manager.

Edwards is set to take charge of the team after the current 2021/22 season ends.

The 39-year-old has been in charge of Premier League club Forest Green Rovers, which he has coached since 2021.

“Watford Football Club is pleased to confirm the appointment of Rob Edwards as their new coach, following the conclusion of the current season, 2021/22,” the statement read.

“Rob had a contractual provision allowing him to leave Forest Green Rovers at any time to discuss business opportunities at other clubs and the Hornets are pleased to confirm our discussions that ended today,” he added.

Robb joined Forest Green Rovers as head coach in 2021, with his charismatic brand of charisma guiding Gloucestershire to the top of Sky Bet League Two – winning the league earlier this month for the first time in the club’s history.

During this successful season, he was honored by the Premier League when he was awarded the Second League Manager of the Season award.

He is expected to be present when the Hornets play Everton in a Premier League match on Wednesday night.
