Young Sierra Leone midfielder Al Bangura is facing deportation from the United Kingdom.

Earlier this year Bangura was off the hook and allowed to stay in the UK but now the Home Office have lodged an appeal against the original decision.

Bangura will not face a tribunal on Monday week at which his manager Aidy Boothroyd may well take the stand.

The youngster made his debut in 2005 when he replaced injured skipper Gavin Mahon. Since then he has amassed more than forty appearances for the club. This season the tough-tackling Bangura has been on the sidelines with a broken ulna [elbow bone] sustained in the Carling Cup.

The 19 year-old has had a tough start in life after fleeing his native country and beeing ‘befriended’ by a Frenchman who turned him, against his will, into a male prostitute.

But, since arriving in the UK, Bangura’s fortunes have improved as he has established himself as an important part of the first-team setup at Vicarage Road.

We here at VitalWatford towers hope that the tenacious midfielder gives that committee whatfor in a forntnights time with one of his spectacular leg-breaking challenges!
