Some excited Watford fans welcomes Harry the Hornet to their school this week ahead of the club's huge FA Cu Final at Wembley.

The Watford mascot visited St Joseph's Catholic Primary School in South Oxhey and Sacred Heart Primary School in Bushey where he met young pupils who were dressed head to toe in their Watford kit and fancy dress.

The schools also head a special FA Cup poster competition and the winning designs were displayed in photographs with Harry.

Meanwhile schools across the area have been sending good luck messages to the Hornets as they prepare to take on Manchester City at 5pm.

And this is how other fans have been gearing up for the final

Watford Observer:

11-week-old Maddison Roper has no idea how big this game is but she's showing her support!

Watford Observer:

And her brothers Jenson and Max are ready for the match too at their Watford FC-themed home

Nurses at Watford General Hospital have been showing their support too.

Christine Allen, chief executive at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “It’s fantastic to see such a buzz around Watford in the run up to the FA cup final. Watford FC are brilliant neighbours and we’re always grateful to their players who visit our children’s ward every Christmas. We wish them the best of luck and I know that many of our staff and visitors will be cheering them on.”

Children’s play specialist Helen Cripps said: “Everyone on Starfish ward is really looking forward to Saturday. There are quite a few nurses who have tickets for Wembley and lots of us will be in Cassiobury park to watch the game on the big screen."
