Former Hornets Favourite Joins Stones Staff
28-01-2019 I News Headlines
Vanarama National League South club Wealdstone have appointed former Watford midfielder Richard Johnson as their new technical director.

Johnson, now 44, played more than 200 games for the Hornets and his role with the Stones will be combined with his business development executive position at Vicarage Road.

 

Wealdstone have stated Johnson’s role will include but not be limited to working with the Board of Directors to identify a manager suitable to lead the under-23 side next season, beginning to consider links with professional clubs to support loan signings to the first-team for next season and to identify professional clubs for potential pre-season friendlies and plan pre-season with the Board and management team.

 

Aussie Johnson, who was born in Kurri Kurri, will also be expected to work with the Board to identify and consider commercial opportunities that may benefit club turnover and raise the club’s profile.

 

As a player, Johnson was a key figure in the Graham Taylor side that won consecutive promotions from Division Two and Division One to reach the Premier League in 1999, and he also had spells with Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City, Colchester United, MK Dons and Northampton Town before ending his career in New Zealand with New Zealand Knights and Wellington Phoenix.
