14/15 Away Kit To Commemorate First World War

Watford Football Club have released a video detailing the outline of their plans for the 2014/15 season's away kit.

The video, entitled Part 1 of 2: 2014/15 Away Kit Launch - Watford FC remembers..., contains a photograph of each of the twelve Watford players that served their country during the First World War.

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War (1914-1918). The club invites us to join with them in remembering the twelve players who served during this time.

The video states that the 2014/15 away kit will reference these players in some way or other, with many fans suggesting that the club will release a black and white vertically striped kit, as this is the style of shirt that was worn by the football club throughout the First World War.

Another option that the club appears to have is listing the names of the men that served somewhere on the shirt.

Some fans have also speculated that the shirts may be poppy red, or may contain a poppy within its design to commemorate the fallen.

The club have stated that 1.00 from every shirt sale will be donated to the Royal British Legion.

The names of the twelve Watford players who served their country during the First World War are as follows:

Albert Green
Bill Hastings
Bill Markland
Alex Stewart
Owen Gregory
Ernie Grimsdale
George Badenoch
Harold Bulling
Jimmy Chalmers
Joe McLaughlan
Robert McGuire
Skilly Williams

Keep up to date with this matter by subscribing to the club's official YouTube channel here.

UPDATE: The club have confirmed that the kit will indeed be black and white. Our best guess is that vertical stripes will be used in the kit's design.

Further information will be released in due course.
