An integral part of Graham Taylor’s 1999 promotion winning side, Richard Johnson made well over 200 appearances for the Hornets and scored seven goals in the Hornets Division Two title winning season.
Johnson’s ability to strike the ball from long distance was a crucial part of his game and soon became a trademark of the Australian midfielder.
His talents were not limited to fierce efforts from 30 yards out however they did produce several memorable goals including a spectacular volley against Bristol City and a thunderous effort to clinch a late win against Wolves.
