Hornets to stay at Kings Langley

Two year extension for the Golden Girls...

WATFORD Ladies are delighted to confirm that a new agreement has been signed with Kings Langley FC, which will see the Hornets remain at the CRY Community Stadium for a further two seasons.

The club originally signed a one-year deal with the Kings ahead of the Spring Series, before extending for a further season in 2017/18 which also saw the Under-20 Development Team transition to the ground.

The image above conveys how far the ground has developed in only a years' time, and both parties look forward to working together over the coming seasons - with further substantial development work to be announced. 

A significant amount of work has been undertaken since the start of the 2017/2018 season. A mutually beneficial relationship has seen large sums of money invested into the ground both on and off the pitch. The Hornets will invest into the playing surface ahead of each season and have recently contributed to other improvements such as painting, signage and aesthetic improvements inside the changing room areas.

"We're really happy that we'll be staying at Kings Langley for at least another two seasons. Our current relationship with the club is really strong, and it was important that we continue to work together," said Ed Henderson, Interim General Manager.

"There's no denying that there's work to do, but the progress already made is testament to all involved, especially the volunteers at Kings Langley who go above and beyond every matchday for us.

"It's important now that we continue to strengthen on and off the field and make the CRY Stadium feel like a second home for Watford fans. It's testament to the club that they have committed to more funding into the playing surface and we're looking forward to hitting the ground running next season."

The Golden Girls are next in action in the WSL 2 this Sunday, as Sheffield FC make the trip to Kings Langley.
