The focus of our weekly look back through our Watford FC picture archive in partnership with the Watford Treasury now switches to the men who made much, if not all of their names in front of the opposition net - the goalscorers. And we start with four of the most famous from the last 45 years: John Barnes, Ross Jenkins, Maurice Johnston and the greatest of them all, Luther Blissett.

No player has scored more goals - 186 - or made more appearances - 503 - for Watford than Luther Blissett, assuring him of legendary status and ensuring he remains one of the town's favourite sons to this day.

Blissett's combination of athleticism and attacking talent epitomised Graham Taylor's Hornets side that famously rose from the Fourth to the First Division, helping to earn the striker 14 England caps and a £1million move to AC Milan.

If you mention Blissett, many fans will automatically think of the man who was the other half of one of the most successful forward partnerships in the club's history, Ross Jenkins.

The big centre football played for the club when it was both 92nd and first in the Football League standings and those extremes, to a lesser extent, sum up a player who was to blossom under Taylor, scoring a high of 37 league and cup goals in the 1978/79 season when the Hornets were promoted to Division Two.

The goals of Blissett and Jenkins were vital in helping Watford secure promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history in 1981/82, but so was the contribution of a young player who hadn't even made his debut when that season kicked off - John Barnes.

Still widely recognised as the club's most talented player ever, some fans may remember Barnes more for his creative talents.

After scoring 13 Division Two goals in his debut season though, the England international netted at least 10 league goals in all but one of the five top-flight campaigns he played for Watford before he moved to Liverpool.

Maurice Johnston's Vicarage Road career lasted less than a year and 50 games, but his goalscoring exploits in a yellow shirt were to continue throughout his career.

'Mo Jo' was just 20 when he arrived from Partick Thistle for £200,000 in November 1983, but he was to quickly demonstrate what a shrewd Taylor signing he was thanks to his movement and predatory instincts in the opposition penalty area.

Johnston was soon to be grabbing the headlines - and by no means for the last time in his career - with a hat-trick in his third appearance, a 5-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, and he finished the 1983/84 campaign as top scorer with 24 goals from 36 league and cup matches.
