Watford FC wishes to place on record its thanks to Hayden Mullins for his work at Vicarage Road.
Mullins has worked within the academy set-up since his summer 2016 appointment, working primarily as lead coach for the club’s Under-23 team.
“Hayden represented the club with great dignity in difficult circumstances,” said Chairman & CEO Scott Duxbury of the former midfielder’s work as Interim Head Coach for the Hornets’ first-team on two separate occasions during the 2019/20 campaign.
“His popularity among the first-team playing squad was typical of the respect he earned from all parts of the club during his time here.
“I’m delighted that he’s getting a coaching opportunity at first-team level, and we all wish him every success for the future.”
