Debut v Nottingham Forest – Feb 2011
Nicknames – Stoney, Bale
Rob was introduced to the club by best-mate Jez Hinds in Feb 2011, joining the full squad the following season. Rob started WIFC life at right-back, and showed a very non-right back approach to goalscoring, bucking the trend set by several older team-mates by scoring a long range screamer in a home win against Coventry. Rob’s since moved into central midfield, where he’s become an integral member of the side and former manager Chris Davis’ favourite starred there during 2012/13, winning 3 man of the match awards, playing a full part in the run to winning the IFA London Cup and a second place in Players Player for 2013/14.
Rob’s Q and A
Describe yourself in a sentence
A better looking version of Gareth Bale without the quality.
What was the first WFC game you went to and what can you remember about it?
It was an end to end 0-0 draw at home to Charlton I think in the mid 90’s. The last memory of this game was sat freezing in the Family stand eating those Fireblast sweets you used to be able to get from the shop at the bottom of the stairs.
Finest ever WFC memory
Play Off 1st leg away at Palace
Worst away trip and why
Ipswich away because I was sat next to Wellsy for 90 minutes and the first half was horrendous
WIFC playing highlight
Scoring my first goal for the club against Coventry.
Favourite WIFC moment
Playing at the Vic.
All-time favourite Watford player
All-time favourite Watford XI (not the best players – your favourites)
