Watford supporters have voted for the Hornets to wear black shorts with their 2014/2015 home kit.

The club decided to let fans decide whether this season’s home shirt would be accompanied by red shorts or black shorts and there were fewer than 200 votes between the two colours.

Almost 4,300 votes were cast before the June 15 deadline and 2,212 chose black while 2,072 opted for red.

Watford will therefore wear black and yellow for the third consecutive season. Red shorts will be used as the club’s second choice in the event of a kit clash.
