Peter Kennedy joined Watford from Notts County 17 years ago today

Watford Observer: On this date in Watford FC history On this date in Watford FC history

Friday, July 4, 1997

Peter Kennedy joined Watford from Notts County for a fee of £130,000.

Only a squad player at Meadow Lane, the left-sided Kennedy was to make 134 appearances in four years at Vicarage Road, scoring 22 goals; 13 of these, including a fine hat-trick at Roots Hall against Southend United, came in his debut season when he was the club's leading scorer from wing-back. He was a key player as the Hornets won the second division title.

Kennedy made his debut for Northern Ireland as a Watford player in 1999 before joining Wigan Athletic in 2001. He later played for Peterborough United, before returning to Northern Ireland.

It makes you feel so old when you think it was 17 years ago.

Any Statto out there?

I am not aware of Peter scoring a hat-trick at Southend or anywhere else.

Darren Bosman Bazeley score one at Southend in Feb 1995.

Peter remembers a hat trick at Southend so I guess he would know!

He says the third is one of his favourite goals.
