Watford will celebrate their annual Graham Taylor match day when they host Aston Villa on the opening day of the season.

It is tradition for the Hornets to celebrate the life of their greatest ever manager once every season and they have decided to do that on August 14 when they host Villa, who Taylor also managed on two separate occasions.

Taylor's family have accepted an invitation to be present in the stadium, as Watford look to begin their new Premier League campaign on a high.

The day is traditionally marked with a scarf display, with fans requested to take their seats earlier than they ordinarily might to participate.

The club have confirmed that they will also be using the occasion to thank the NHS for their work during the Covid-19 pandemic, although details on that are yet to be announced.
