Watford Football Club is one of our town’s golden assets. Through its membership of the most widely-known football league in the world, the club is known internationally.
But this hasn’t always been the case. The club had modest beginnings, and from its early days in 1881 through to the late 1950s didn’t attract a lot of attention within the wider football world. Then however things started to change.
These pages tell the story of our club. Decade by decade, you can read about Watford FC’s progress, and about some of the key matches. You can read through the periods in sequence, or just click on the decades of most interest to you.
