Matchday Travel: Hornets Announce Mullanys Partnership

The Hornets are delighted to confirm a new partnership for the provision of supporter matchday travel with Mullanys Coaches Ltd, a local company familiar to many fans.
 
Watford FC's Supporter Liaison Officer Dave Messenger said of the agreement: "The club loves to work with renowned suppliers from around our local community, especially those with an established reputation in their industry.
 
"And one of the key reasons behind our choice, aside from the obvious benefit of geography, was the company's long-term investment in the provision of enhanced accessible services on all of the coaches in the fleet our supporters will use."
 
Mullanys Director Sue Viney said: "With over 50 years of providing bus and coaching services in Watford, we at Mullanys Coaches are proud to begin a new partnership with Watford Football Club - a club close to many of our employees' hearts.
 
"We hope that this will be a long and successful relationship and our friendly team of drivers are looking forward to welcoming their fellow supporters onto our coaches for the trip to Burnley in August."
 
Added Messenger, whose role also encompasses Disability Access Officer duties: "I think our fans will really notice the difference in terms of that personal touch to the service, ensuring we accommodate all of our travelling fans' wishes.
 
"Hand-in-hand with this move, we're also committing once again to ensure the longest awayday trips still cost no more than £40 for match ticket and travel combined."
 
Exact club coach travel prices for away fixtures will be confirmed as match tickets are prepared for sale.
 
For now, it's a big welcome to the Watford family to Mullanys Coaches Ltd and all of their staff, many of whom are Hornets' fans.

Pre-Season Training: First Day Back

The Hornets were put through their paces as they reported for duty bright and early this morning for what was the first day of their 2018/19 pre-season training schedule.

In unforgiving conditions, members of Javi Gracia’s first-team squad underwent a series of fitness tests in the gym as well as outside on the London Colney training pitches.

Summer signings Gerard Deulofeu, Adam Masina, Marc Navarro and Ben Wilmot were all present, while Pontus Dahlberg and Dimitri Foulquier joined up with the Hornets for the first time following their respective loans with IFK Göteborg and RC Strasbourg.

Adalberto Peñaranda is also taking part in pre-season medical testing.

Watch the video above to go behind-the-scenes on the first day of pre-season training.
