Watford U-18 Star, Obi Eyes First Team Action

Nigerian born Watford U-18 forward, Ogo Obi, has stated that his target is to make the leap into the first team squad.

Obi struck eight times to help Watford U-18s claim top-spot in the Professional Development League 2 South.

In a chat with watfordfc.com, Obi said: “I’ve just got to take everything as it comes, but of course I’m looking to push even further than the Under-21s.

“I want to see how things go and try and take the next step into first-team football.”

The 18-year-old who has also been involved with Watford's U-21s, handled by Harry Kewell, says he is relishing the opportunity to work with the Australian next season in order to continue improving.

“It’s been great to be involved with the Under-21s and I’ve just tried to learn from what they do, even in training.”

“Harry’s also been great to work under and obviously as a former player at such a high level, when he’s telling me stuff to do I can take it on board and I know he’s been in the same situation as I have."
