Emmanuel Dennis has been crowned the winner of August’s Player of the Month award.
Hornets fans voted in their numbers overnight, selecting the first-teamer for their stand-out contributor during an exhilarating start to life back in the Premier League.
Host Emma Saunders and Watford legend Tommy Mooney revealed the winner during the Hive Live broadcast, ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ visit to Hertfordshire on Saturday afternoon.
Nigeria international Dennis wasted no time in endearing himself to the Vicarage Road faithful following his June move from Club Brugge, notching the opening goal against Aston Villa on the first day of the season.
Having also contributed an assist in that electrifying 3-2 victory, Dennis went on to make three further appearances in August, completing 90 minutes against Brighton and Spurs, as well as half a game in the Carabao Cup win over Crystal Palace.
Dennis clinched the Stake Player of the Month gong ahead of Peter Etebo and Ismaïla Sarr, with 46 per cent of the overall vote.
