Saturday, February 1, 1958

Luther Blissett was born in Falmouth, Jamaica.

Over three playing spells with the club, Blissett made more appearances and scored more goals for Watford than anyone else to date.

He was the first Watford player to be capped by England, the first million-pound sale in 1983 and more than any other player epitomised the Hornets' side of the late 70s and early 80s.

He later returned to Vicarage Road as part of Graham Taylor's management team.
