Winger Sean back in training

WATFORD'S Irish prospect Seán Murray has vowed to be back in action stronger than ever next season after he began his recovery from an injury which ruined his season.

Touted for a senior call-up and name-checked by Martin O'Neill last season on the back of some good form with the Hornets, Murray has started just two league games this season and has been sidelined since January due to a knee injury.

But the 21-year-old resumed training with the club yesterday and while he will of course miss the remaining games in the Hornets' push for promotion to the Premier League, he is looking to the future.

"This is the first little bit of good news I've had," he said of his return to training.

"It's a good chance for me to kick on, and catch up with some of the fitness work I've been missing out on. Even though it'll be pre-season by the time I'm back, I'll be looking forward to it."

Murray, capped 11 times at U21 level, made his Watford debut in 2011 and has scored 11 goals in 74 league games.
