Hornets confirm new chief

06 March 2009 11:58
Watford have confirmed the appointment of Jimmy Russo as the club's new chairman. Russo has replaced Andy Wilson in the hot-seat, following the interim chairman's recent decision to step down. Wilson took the job on a temporary basis last November after the shock resignation of Graham Simpson. "I am delighted to take on the chairmanship of such a great club," said Russo, whose brother, Vince, will become executive vice-chairman at Vicarage Road. "It's truly an honour and I look forward to working with my fellow directors. "I will always do my utmost for the club and serve it in a way the fans should be proud of. "However I want people to be under no illusions as to the task ahead."
