Watford appoint Sean Dyche as Manager

Watford have appointed Sean Dyche as the club's new manager.

Dyche steps up to the top job from his previous role as assistant to Malky Mackay, who left to take over at Cardiff last week.

The 39-year-old former defender had spells playing for Chesterfield, Bristol City, Millwall, Watford and Northampton.

Owner Laurence Bassini said: "I'm delighted that the Board - Graham Taylor, Stuart Timperley and David Fransen - have been able to add their experience and influence to the decision to appoint Sean as our new manager."

Chairman Graham Taylor said of Dyche's appointment: "On behalf of the Board, I fully endorse Sean's appointment. It is very good news for Watford Football Club.

"Continuity is imperative. In Sean, we have a very decent man who understands what it means to work for Watford.

"He is a strong advocate of the importance of our home-grown talent flourishing, having been youth-team coach only a couple of years ago," added Taylor.

"For me, this appointment is very much in keeping with 'The Watford Way' of doing things - and that's an ethos I'm growing more familiar with as time goes on," explained Bassini.

"It's important we've appointed someone who has a real feeling for what this club is about. I'm very glad we've been able to reach this point now
