When Watford were promoted to the Premier League in 2015 they finished the season with 91 league goals. The total was just one short of the club record for a campaign set in 1959/60. Those 92 goals are even more impressive if you consider they were scored by just eight players - and two were responsible for 72 of them.

We have been looking back at some of the club's most well-known goalscorers over the past fortnight and, in association with the Watford Treasury, we complete it this week by focusing on the source of those 72 goals, Cliff Holton and Dennis Uphill.

Watford Observer:

A powerful and dominant centre forward, Holton was Watford's star of that era and remains one of the greatest strikers in the club's history. He averaged almost a league goal a game - and a total of 48 from just 53 league and cup appearances - in that season as Ron Burgess' side finished fourth in Division Four to achieve promotion.

Another 34 league and cup goals followed the next season before Holton was sold the following year in a move that caused lasting anger in many quarters.

In any other season Uphill would have been the runaway top scorer with 30 goals from 44 league games in the 1959/60 campaign, and a total of 36 in 52 league and cup appearances.

Watford Observer:

But the partnership that had provided an astonishing 84 league and cup goals in one season was to prove shortlived as Uphill joined Crystal Palace in October 1960.

The 1962/63 campaign was to see another player capture the scoring headlines as Dai Ward finished top scorer in Division Three with 29 goals from 46 appearances.

Another player whose time at Vicarage Road was shortlived, the busy inside forward was to move to Brentford the following year.

With Bill McGarry now in charge though, Watford need not have worried as three players were primarily responsible for scoring the goals as they finished third in the table, narrowly missing out on promotion to Division Two.

Watford Observer:

George Harris (16) and Ken Oliver (19) both contributed significantly, but it was Charlie Livesey who finished as top scorer in 1963/64 with 23 league goals.

The former First Division striker, who'd played alongside Jimmy Greaves at Chelsea, Livesey almost inspired Watford to reaching the second tier of English football for the first time in their history with a series of wonderful displays that assured him of a place in the club's folklore.
