I had a fabulous time with a couple of medals and a few goals, not as many as Troy Deeney! But I can only look fondly back at my time with the club.
An iconic figure at Vicarage Road, Tommy Mooney’s popularity among the Watford supporters came from a relentless battling approach to the game - and the odd goal.
Mooney’s scoring run in 1999 fuelled the club’s dramatic surge into the Premier League. He scored the only goal in a famous 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield, giving the Hornet’s their first victory of their inaugural Premier League campaign.
Despite an unfortunate injury that kept him out for the majority of that Premier League season, Mooney returned the following year in a determined fashion scoring 18 league goals for the Golden Boys.
Revered at The Vic to this day, in 2006 Mooney took a ticket in the away end at Old Trafford watching the Hornets, and spent the entire ninety minutes being serenaded by his adoring travelling faithful.
