Nigeria forward Isaac Success took an ‘unofficial’ bow for Watford as he played his first game for the Hornets in Sunday’s test game against Woking FC.
The club-record signing came in as a 67th minute substitute for defender Tommie Hoban and though the Nigerian did not score in his debut outing, he showed a glimpse of what to expect from him in the days ahead.
Sunday’s game was Watford’s first 2016/17 pre-season friendly and it ended in a 1-1 draw at Woking.
Steven Berghuis opened the scoring midway through the first-half with a strike from the left side of the area which deflected into the net.
The National League side struck back quickly through Charlie Carter, who capitalised on a goalmouth scramble to score from close-range.
Beyond the result, it was a useful workout for the Hornets in Surrey, with other new signings apart from Success like Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jerome Sinclair all given game-time after the break for the first time in Watford shirts by Head Coach Walter Mazzarri.
