Confirmed: Watford player departs on temporary basis



Watford youngster Sam Dalby has completed a loan move to Woking of the National League, with the 21-year-old’s arrival being announced on the non-league club’s official website.

A striker by trade, Dalby has risen through the youth ranks at Vicarage Road and previously spent time out on loan with Stockport County this season in a bid to enhance his development.

To date he has made one senior appearance for the Hornets, which came back in the 2019/20 campaign in the FA Cup against Tranmere Rovers in a 3-3 draw.

The 21-year-old was only afforded four league appearances at Stockport and will be hoping for a lot more in the way of opportunities with the Cards as he joins up with them until the end of the current campaign.

The ground has a capacity of over 24,500.

Previously at Leyton Orient earlier in his career, Dalby has a contract with Watford which expires in June of this year.

The Verdict

This is a move that should be viewed as make or break for the striker as his performances on loan at Woking are likely to determine whether the Hornets will offer him a new contract or not.

Given that he is at risk of being released in just a few months from now, Dalby really needs to seize this opportunity to impress Xisco Munoz.

Woking are a club that likes to give young players a chance, so his desire for more first team football should be well served at The Laithwaite Community Stadium.

Only time will tell if he has a long term future at Watford, with the Championship side sure to ring the changes come the summer as Munoz begins to shape the team around his philosophy.
