Manchester United’s Ashley Young reacts on Twitter to Watford’s Premier League promotion

Manchester United winger Ashley Young is delighted to see Watford gain promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has taken to social networking site Twitter to revel in Watford’s promotion to the Premier League.

England international Young is a former Watford player and rose through the club’s academy before going on to establish himself in the first team.

The 29-year-old was a key player in the Hornets’ promotion-winning Championship season of 2005-06, and he is delighted to see his former club get promotion to the Premier League for the 2015-16 campaign.

Just seconds after it was confirmed today that Watford have been promoted, Young made the following post on Twitter:

Watford currently have 88 points from 45 matches, four points clear at the top of the Championship table.

With just a round of games remaining this season in the second tier of English football, Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are guaranteed of a top-two finish.

Watford’s final match of the 2014-15 campaign is against Sheffield Wednesday at home next weekend.
