Richard Thomas joined the club in May 2019 as Academy Manager.

Thomas developed a reputation for nurturing gifted young players during seven years at Leyton Orient – four of which as Academy Manager – once leading the club’s Under-18s to a league title before Christmas and overseeing an impressive FA Youth Cup run.

He more recently served as Notts County assistant manager under Kevin Nolan, and now hopes to strengthen an environment that ensures Watford’s Academy players excel both on the pitch and away from football.
