It has just been offically confirmed that Chris Iwelumo has joined Watford for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a two year deal.

Iwelumo spent just one season at Turf Moor after being signed by Brian Laws from Wolves in June 2010. His most memorable game was at home to Preston when he got a hat-trick helping the Clarets come from 3-1 down to beat our local rivals 4-3

He scored 11 goals for the Clarets but his tally dred up last season and he managed just one goal on the road curiously against the Hornets! He also got one in our home game against them with Burnley completing the double over Watford last season.

The news sets up an intriguing opener to the new season with Watford due to play Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday August 6th.
