Highly-rated Zambian striker Evans Kangwa 'honoured' to be joining Watford on trial

First published in Sport

Zambian striker Evans Kangwa says he is "honoured" to be joining Watford on trial in January.

Kangwa, who was top scorer in the Zambian top flight last season, has confirmed Watford are one of the club's interested in him.

The 18-year-old plays for Zambian side Nkana and was the golden boot winner at the COSAFA Under-20 Championship in Botswana last year.

"It feels good to be invited by a big club like Watford to attend trials. It’s an honour for me," Kangwa told the Lusaka Times.

"I am just waiting for travelling documents. I will be travelling next month," he added.

By our guys - am assuming you are referring to the Kennel Club?

How is it all going - do you think you will make the play offs - looks like Grimsby and Wrexham will fight it out for the outright promotion position - You seem to still be getting reasonable gates - 5000 is great for the Conference

Does it still hurt that you lost your league status while we are going from strength to strength?

He sounds very promising, let's get him over and give him a run out, if he is not good enough to challenge for the first team yet, maybe he will be soon.

Jason, you hatter you. Why do you attend all them WFC games in a Watford top? Strange! And how dare you mingle in the Red Lion with other Watford fans, some who are even your friends and family? Again most strange
Are you so desperate to see decent football in a good league that your are driven to actually live in Watford? Very strange and what's more I'd be grateful if you could relinquish your season ticket that you have held since you were a young boy. Weirdo.
Got to say if there's a Watford fan who attends more games home and away over numerous seasons then they must be an even bigger Luton fan than you. Stalker!
