Max Watters Joins Cardiff City
The 21-year-old has caught the headlines during a prolific first half of the season in League Two.
Watters registered 13 goals in just 15 appearances for Crawley, whom he only joined in the summer after being released by Doncaster Rovers. The forward averaged a goal every 79 minutes for John Yems’ side, and his goalscoring record was only bettered by Cambridge United’s Paul Mullin and Danny Johnson of Leyton Orient.
Watters impressed from the off during his time with the Sussex-based club. The 21-year-old scored twice on his debut after coming on at half-time in a 4-0 win over Morecambe. A run of three goals in four games followed after his debut, as he helped Crawley climb the League Two table.
What Was Said?
Speaking about his move to the Cardiff City website after joining, Watters said: “When I first found out about Cardiff’s interest I was immediately attracted to it. Wales is a lovely place to live, so it came down to that really.
“As a striker, you’ve got to score goals, and that’s what I’m here to do.
“It’s a big game at home against QPR in midweek. It’s a shame that fans can’t be here so I can play in front of them. Hopefully I’m involved and hopefully we can get the win.”
Cardiff fans may have to be patient with their new signing. While there is a huge amount of promise and expectation surrounding his move to the Cardiff City Stadium, it is a big jump from League Two to the Championship. Watters will take time to adjust and this can be a slow process, despite Neil Harris’ side currently sitting 15th in the Championship table.
