Watford have changed the way the club will select a new crest, after submissions were closed last week.

An email was sent out to supporters in June saying that the Hornets were looking for a new badge that would "best represent Watford FC in the future."

Originally, after all designs have been collected, supporters were going to vote on which they thought was the best design out of six different options, including the five best fan designs and the current crest, after a panel of 20 fans had chosen their favourites.

However, after receiving more than 4,000 entries, the club has decided on a new method of selection.

The panel of supporters will now narrow the 4,000 down into a top 50, which a larger panel of around 900 fans will then trim down to a top 20.

From there, every Watford supporter registered on the club's database will be asked to select the winning design.
