Gallery: Junior Hornets Fun Day

See a selection of images from Watford's Junior Hornets Fun Day below.


Yesterday (Tuesday August 31) saw Watford stage a Fun Day for the club's Junior Hornet members.

The invitation-only event was filled with fun activities for children under-15, with opportunities for autographs and selfies with Javi Gracia and the Golden Boys squad.

While the players trained in the morning, the Junior Hornets warmed up with a go on the inflatable slide.

Then the players arrived and signed balls, books and shirts for every child.

After that, the players got involved with the activities. Abdoulaye Doucouré got a little bit competitive with Connect 4...

Will Hughes showed early signs of being a future coach as he gave pointers on striking the ball.

Étienne Capoue got involved in the Community Trust's five-a-side game, as the Junior Hornets got a chance to play with the professionals!

And finally, Jenga is obviously a serious tactical game for a defender, with Sebastian Prödl plotting his next move against this young Hornet.


Keep an eye on watfordfc.com and the club's social channels for future Junior Hornets events.
