Bermuda youth international Kane Crichlow has agreed to sign for Watford Football Club Under-23s on a two-year contract.
The 18-year-old forward arrives from AFC Wimbledon on July 1st, 2019 after a successful trial and will join up with Watford’s Development Squad ahead of the start of the 2019/20 season.
Speaking to watfordfc.com, Crichlow – a Bermuda Under-20 international who has also captained his country’s Under-17s and Under-15s – said: “I’m very excited. It’s always been a dream of mine since I was young to sign for a team that’s in the Premier League.
“I’m really excited that it’s finally come true and over the summer I’m going to be doing a lot of work in the gym and training with my national team to make sure I’m ready for pre-season.”
Academy Manager Richard Thomas added, “Kane has shown great attitude combined with top technical quality in his time with us so far, which suggests to us that he can go a long way.
“He’s a very talented player on the ball, he can play off both sides and use both feet very well and he can finish, so we’re expecting him to be very dangerous in the top third of the pitch.
“I’ve seen in the short time I’ve been here that we’ve got some really good players in the building already, so adding to that will freshen up the group and create some more competition, which can only bode well for the Under-23s and the rest of the Academy going forward.”
