First & Last: Craig Cathcart

Hornets defender Craig Cathcart talks us through his picks for our quick-fire 'First & Last' interview...


CAR

First: It was a Seat Leon, 1.6 engine. I remember it was midnight blue.

Last: I recently ordered myself a Tesla.

MATCH

First: My first proper game as a kid would have been a Rangers match; I think it was on a day when they won a trophy too against St Johnstone. I used to go to watch Linfield as well.

Last: I can’t really remember, probably one of our games when I’ve been injured sitting in the stands.

FILM

First: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. That’s my first memory. It used to scare me when I was a kid!

Last: The last film I watched was Johnny English Reborn, it was hilarious. Mr Bean is a legend.

ALBUM

First: It was probably one of the Now ones, but I can’t remember which one.

Last: I just downloaded the new Ed Sheeran album, that’s my most recent one.

CONCERT

First: I went to see Snow Patrol in Belfast probably about 10 years ago.

Last: Also Snow Patrol in Belfast about 10 years ago. I don’t really go to any concerts!

GOAL

First: It would have been for Royal Antwerp. I scored two goals in my first two games.

Last: It was Spurs away at Wembley last season.

BOOTS

First: My first pair of boots were Hi-Tec, remember them?! My granny bought me them. They were terrible but that’s all we could afford back then.

Last: Now I wear Adidas Copa 20.1 boots.

PHONE

First: It was my dad’s, one of those Nokias with the flip down bit and the antenna. I got the hand me down from him.

Last: I’ve got the new iPhone X, I think it is.

TROPHY

First: Probably my best memory of winning one was the Northern Ireland Cup for my home team St Andrew’s. I was probably about 10 or 11.

Last: They gave us a medal for being runners-up in the Championship that no-one wanted.

MEAL COOKED

First: I remember it. At Man United they gave us cooking lessons, so I cooked pasta, tuna with tomato sauce and sweetcorn.

Last: You’re going to be impressed. I made courgetti bolognese. I went out and bought the spiraliser and everything.

Watch: Sarr’s Best Bits So Far

Watford's record signing Ismaïla Sarr has taken the Premier League by storm in recent months.

The Senegal international, who signed from Rennes in August 2019, has lit up the Hornets' attack with a series of thrilling displays from the right flank, scoring in crucial wins against Manchester United and Aston Villa over the Christmas period.

However, it was his two goals and one assist in last month's remarkable 3-0 win over Liverpool which really made the wider footballing world stand up and take notice, as Jürgen Klopp's side saw a 44-game unbeaten run come crashing to a halt on an electric night at Vicarage Road.

Watch Sarr's best bits so far in 2019/20 below.
