Watford have finally confirmed some of the staffing changes on the club website.

Former assistant manager Ian Woan, ex-coach Tony Loughlan and the old head of medical Dave Hart stopped working at Watford once Gianfranco Zola's appointment was announced two weeks ago.

They were replaced by assistant coaches Giancarlo Corradini and Dodo Sormani and head of medical Marco Cesarini but the club decided against confirming the changes.

However, Watford have announced eight new members of staff have joined the club.

The other five were head of rehabilitation Giorgio Gasparini, football operations manager Richard Line, recruitment scout Filippo Giraldi, scouting network co-ordinator Robert Leeson and scouting co-ordinator Luke Warrington.

Goalkeeping coach Alec Chamberlain, sports scientist Matt Springham, video and performance technician Dave Stephens, assistant fitness coach Ben Dixon, kit manager Will Jones and youth team coach David Hughes have all be listed as still being at the club.

The Watford Observer will have further updates on changes to coaching staff in tomorrow's newspaper.
