One of the first lines of defence in midfield, Les Taylor often showed a willingness to carry out the dirty work in the side, regularly breaking-up opposition attacks to great effect.
Taylor possessed a workman-like style that proved to be a valuable asset for the Hornets through the club’s peak years and went onto win the Player of the Season award in 1982. A team that consisted of Barnes, Blissett, and Callaghan to name a few.
Taylor also captained the side at Wembley in the 1984 FA Cup final.
