Brad Simmons


Position – Right Back
DOB – 5/8/1995
Debut v Stevenage – Sep 2012
Nicknames – None yet

Brad joined in September 2012 after seeing details about the club on the WFC forums website. Depressingly for his older team-mates, Brad was not even 2 years old when WIFC were formed, but some fearless displays at both full back spots belied his young years, and he also starred in the London Cup win in 2013, laying on Stu Nicholls’ winner with a storming run and cross.

Brad’s Q and A

Describe yourself in a sentence
Young, and even younger looking

What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?
Do not remember the opposition, but do remember asking ‘what colour are Watford’?

Finest ever WFC memory
Deeney’s goal against Leicester in the play off semi-final 2nd leg, never expected something like that to happen to Watford, and I always wanted to be part of a pitch invasion.

Worst away trip and why
Losing 4-0 at Carrow Road in 2002, we were so bad that Norwich fans cheered our every pass.

WIFC playing highlight
Running with the ball from left back position to their box and assisting the winning goal in the London Cup Final against Stevenage.

Favourite WIFC moment
Playing at Vicarage Road; amazing experience.

All-time favourite Watford player
Lloyd Doyley

All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)
