As one of only 3 men to get Watford promoted to the Premier League, Aidy Boothroyd arrived at Vicarage Road in 2005, with little fanfare and a lot of questions. However, the following season was a whirlwind, which, as we all know, led to promotion in an emphatic win in the 2006 Championship Play Off final against Leeds at the Millennium Stadium.
His time at Watford ended, like so many managers, badly in 2008 and in this Catching Up with Jon talks with Aidy at St George’s Park, where he now leads the next generation of young England players, as the Coach of England Under 21. They discuss his time as the Manager of Watford and now, 10 years on, how he reflects and looks back on his impact, signings and life since leaving The Vic.
