Cliff Holton died suddenly at the age of 67 whilst on holiday in Spain.

The subject of astonishing transfers in and out of Vicarage Road, Holton holds the club record for goals scored in a single season (48 in 1959/60).

He possessed a shot the force of which Oliver Phillips in his book 'The Golden Boys' described as "almost impossible to exaggerate".
