Gary Penrice departs Watford for Aston Villa

This Is Local London: On this date in Watford FC's history On this date in Watford FC's history

Thursday, March 7, 1991

Watford sold Gary Penrice to Aston Villa. He accrued the club's second highest transfer receipt to that point of £875,000, although a sell-on clause saw a percentage of this passed on to Bristol Rovers.

Penrice's Villa career was restricted by a broken leg; he was to return to Vicarage Road for a less prolific spell four years later.
