Watford commission Graham Taylor statue

Watford have com­mis­si­oned a statue to honour the club's former manager Graham Taylor.

Taylor, who also managed the England national team from 1990 until 1993, died on 12 January this year, aged 72 with his funeral being attended by hundreds of fans.

The club have announced that they will erect a statue to celebrate his footballing career outside their Vicarage Road ground.

Addi­ti­onal­ly, the club have said that a pre-season tribute fixture is being planned in his memory.

The exact details of the statue such as location and details of its design haven't yet been decided.

The Watford website described the proposed statue and pre-season match as "two significant tributes... to remember Watford's greatest ever manager".
