Were you on the pitch celebrating on that Tuesday night in May 1982 when Watford had beaten Wrexham 2-0 to secure promotion to the old First Division for the first time in the club's history?

Thanks to the Watford Treasury who have been digging through the archives, we can take you on another trip down memory lane back to what is popularly recognised as the golden era in Hornets history when Graham Taylor led the club to previously unscaled heights in the English game.

Whether it was the joyous scenes after winning promotion to the top flight, or the disappointment that was to follow two years later when Watford were beaten 2-0 by Everton in their first FA Cup final appearance at Wembley, the pride in the team among fans remained constant.

Scroll down this page and enjoy looking back at some pictures you may not have seen for many years as we also recall when Watford opened their own train platform close to Vicarage Road and one of the most predatory goalscorers of that decade.
