About us

WD Sport was set up in the summer of 2015 to reflect the broad range of sporting achievements that take place every weekend in the town of Watford and surrounding areas.

This a golden period for sport in Watford. The town’s football club is in the Premier League, Watford cricketer Steven Finn has helped win the Ashes for England three times, Anthony Joshua is the most exciting boxer in the heavyweight decision and Tom Carroll has captained the England Under-21 football team. Callum Shinkwin has his European Tour card while Reece Bellotti and Miles Shinkwin are unbeaten pro boxers. They have raised the profile of the town and encouraged the next generation of youngsters take up sport.

The Hornets will be at the heart of our unrivalled coverage – we will be alongside Walter Mazzarri’s team every step of the way, through the ups and downs, in print, online and on mobile. But how Troy Deeney performs at Vicarage Road on a Saturday is, for us, just as important as the fortunes of your team, your club, your pub team, your school, your son and your daughter. And we are not just talking about football. We want you to share your stories with us, from rugby to racing, bowls to basketball, tennis to trampolining and hockey to horse racing. If we don’t know about it, we can’t cover it so let us know what your club or team is up to.
