1881 Movement to pay tribute to Watford’s greatest ever manager this weekend against Southampton

News | Fans' Tribute Planned For GT


The 1881 movement have been responsible for some remarkable, memorable foil and flag displays since their inception during the 2013/14 season.

Now the group is planning to turn Vicarage Road into a sea of Watford scarves before tomorrow’s match against Southampton, to mark the first anniversary of Graham Taylor’s passing.

The group are calling on Watford supporters in all stands to bring a scarf to the game. When the familiar opening bars of Z Cars play, supporters are asked to hold their scarves aloft and keep them displayed while the players walk out onto the Vicarage Road turf. 

Roy Moore, the group’s founder, is hoping that the display will prove as memorable as the poppy foil display created during their first season, and the giant flag that covered the whole Rookery stand before this season’s win against Arsenal.

“Our goal has always been about improving the atmosphere at the Vic and we’re hoping that the chance to pay tribute to our greatest ever manager will bring supporters in all four stands together and create something really special,” said Roy. 

“Most supporters have a scarf or two lying about at home, this is the time to dig them out and proudly hold them aloft to pay tribute to GT and show your support for the team”
