Dean's 20 year relationship with Watford

Much of Dean's family life has been centred in Watford for 20 years. His daughter was born at Watford General Hospital. His wife was born in Leavesden and grew up here in Watford. Dean's wife's family remain in Watford, where Dean has enjoyed spending the last 20 Christmas Day's. In fact, Dean's father in-law had a trial for Watford FC back in the 1940's! Watford has been such a significant part of Dean's life and when the opportunity came to stand here following Richard Harrington's retirement, it was somewhat of a dream. Dean is excited to be moving to Watford after the General Election with his wife and daughter.
