Hornets season ticket holders have raised more than £7,000 for charity as part of the club's 'Say No To No-Shows' campaign.

The Watford Observer supported the Golden Boys' campaign when it was launched in the summer and it has proved a success.

The Hornets asked season ticket holders who were unable to attend matches to inform the club so they could re-sell the seats, with the profit being split evenly between two registered charities: The Peace Hospice and Watford FC’s Community Sports & Education Trust.

So far, more than £3,500 has been raised for both of the organisations.

The club’s ‘Say No To No-Shows’ campaign reflects the fact that, typically, 20 per cent of Hornets’ season ticket holders do not attend every match at Vicarage Road.

Season ticket holders unable to attend a home match should e-mail ticket.office@watfordfc.com with their name, Fan ID and seat details.
