VIRTUAL TRIBUTE: Watford FC fans to remember Graham Taylor on Saturday

 Published on: 12th January 2021   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Watford FC

Watford FC will be remembering their greatest manager with a virtual scarf display ahead of kick-off at Vicarage Road against Huddersfield on Saturday, January 16.

Today (January 12) marks four years since Graham Taylor OBE sadly passed away, and Hornets supporters are eager to show their appreciation despite their being no fans in the ground.

Usually, Watford supporters at Vicarage Road raise their scarves as the players walk out, but 

this time they are being asked to share a photo or video of them lifting up their scarf at home.

The pictures will be shown on the big screen as well as featuring on the club’s pre-match build up on their social media channels.

Club captain Troy Deeney said: “Everybody knows that Graham was a very special man and he not only had a big impact on my life but also my grandad’s, who was a huge Villa fan and adored him for what he did there.

“Unfortunately I wasn’t around when the lads raised their scarves at the training ground the other day, but it’s a fitting gesture and even though it’s a shame the fans won’t be there at the weekend, I’m looking forward to seeing all their photos and videos.”

To be a part of the scarf display, email your photo or video to hivelive@watfordfc.com by Thursday, January 14.
