Watford FC unveil Graham Taylor statue.

A statue of former England manager Graham Taylor has been unveiled at Watford FC's ground. Taylor, who died aged 72 in January 2017, led Watford FC from the Fourth Division to runners-up in the old First Division in five years. The statue was commissioned to recognise his "unparalleled achievements as Watford's greatest ever manager", the club said. It stands outside the Hornets Shop at the club's Vicarage Road ground. The bronze statue took award-winning sculptor Douglas Jennings a year to create.

Graham Taylor's family performed the unveilingĀ  before a pre-season friendly match against Italian Serie A side Sampdoria. CSP were proud to support by managing the earlier road closures as well as the match day traffic and car parking.

It has also become a great photo opportunity for fans both on match and non match days.
