It took forever to get Andrew Watson into Burton Hockey. Ages. It's rather unfortunate that this native Burtonian and one of the great friends of the Burton Hockey crew doesn't have the appellation of a Burton Hockey original, for Watson was one of the guys who help plant the seeds for Burton Hockey playing pick-up games in the Burton School courtyard. When it came time for formalisation, however, Watson could not be persuaded to join in. Let's face it, Andrew's no great sports fan. It took seven seasons for Andrew to be persuaded to join in. His appearance shocked even the longest-standing stalwarts of the game. At first, he didn't exactly set the world on fire; having missed out on nearly seven years of action, he had lost a lot of ground to his peers and became the most legendary floater since Colby Olsen. His relocation to Revelstoke also meant that any of this appearances would be few and far between. Perhaps these are the reasons why his stints in 2009 were such a pleasant surprise. Suddenly, Watsy had game, and plenty of it. Having gathered his defensive bearings, he took a quantum leap in 2009 (and another one in 2010) and became a prototypical defensive defenceman, handily shutting down opposing players. Indeed, he is one of the most improved players in Burton Hockey history, and every appearance by the man from Caribou Creek is eagerly anticipated. Older brother Stewart played one session at the end of the inaugural 2000 season.
