August 30 will officially mark exactly 100 years to the day that Watford played their first match at Vicarage Road, and the club will be marking the occasion in a number of ways.

Back in 1922, Watford hosted Millwall in a 0-0 draw, and with the date falling on a Tuesday this year there is, of course, a chance that the club could be playing a home game 100 years later. The Football League’s fixture computer could even throw up an exact repeat should the Hornets be paired at home to Millwall.

However, it’s a major landmark in the history of the club and the stadium, and more than a year ago a supporter-led group called VR100 was created to work in collaboration with the club to look at ways of celebrating the centenary.

The first of those will be a special book and a commemorative ale. They, along with a range of merchandise, will be launched shortly.
