Watford fans are being encouraged to wear Danny Graham-inspired vests with messages of support for the Hornets players at the final home game of the season on Saturday.

One of the fans behind Hornets podcast ‘From the Rookery End’ came up with the idea of Watford supporters wearing vests with a number of different messages to pay tribute to the players and their achievements this season.

Jon Moonie, who set up the podcast with friends Mike Parkin and Jason Bailey, said: “After being written off as relegation candidates, it’s been a great season to be a Watford fan. The team have put in some extraordinary performances and we wanted to find a way in which we could show our appreciation.

“One of the leading lights this year has been Danny Graham, so I thought it would be a great idea to incorporate his famous vest celebration.

“Danny has used his vests to get all sorts of messages across this year, so I thought we could turn the tables and use the same technique to let the team know how proud we are of them.”

Graham has had personal messages on his vests on a few occasions this season, notably when he told his team mates to ‘get over’ him being the club’s table tennis champion and when he had a get well message for the injured Stephen McGinn.

Moonie said: “We got in touch with Danny and he loved the idea. It’s great to have his support and he’s even donated a vest which he has signed. It will be given away as a prize to a lucky supporter taking part on the day.

“It’s just a bit of fun really but the message is simple and heartfelt. We’re proud of our team.”

The vest signed by Graham will be awarded at random to a supporter who has submitted a picture of themselves taking part in the event to podcast@fromtherookeryend.com or using the podcast’s Facebook page.
