It has recently been announced by the club that from next season, the Rous Stand will be named after Graham Taylor, in recognition of his contribution to the club over two successful spells.
The official site has confirmed the move, with CEO Scott Duxbury speaking of the club's decision to rename the stand situated on the West side of Vicarage Road: 'It's always been our intention to honour one of the club's greatest servants and renaming the Rous Stand is hugely appropriate.
'We intend to permanently reserve two seats, for Graham and his wife Rita, within the directors' seating area in a stand which already contains The Sir Elton John Suite.
'Both men are synonymous with a special time in the club's history, so we feel this is a fitting tribute.'
Graham Taylor has also been quoted by the official site as saying: 'I feel truly honoured that Watford would seek to recognise my time at the club in this way.
"As everybody is very well aware, I spent a big part of my working life at the club and as part of the town and its community.
"What we created, among the success on the field of play, was a very special feeling - the memories of which have always remained with me.
"It will certainly feel strange coming to future Watford home matches and sitting in a stand named after myself, although it`s something that myself and my family can take immense pride in. So I would thank everyone at the club most sincerely for this wonderful gesture."
