Locally born midfielder Ross was at Watford from the age of nine, breaking into the first team while still a scholar. He became a regular in the side under Brendan Rodgers but after the Pozzo takeover he found opportunities harder to come by.
Defender Trevor joined Watford as a schoolboy in 1971, and was given his debut in early 1975 by Mike Keen. He was part of the squad under Graham Taylor that won promotion out of Division Four and Division Three in consecutive seasons.
Former youth trainee Jordan had a long association with the club from the age of eight, representing England at youth level and making his first-team debut while still a trainee. He made a single league appearance before joining Barnet in 2010.
The Enjoy the Game Interviews
Richard Jobson was the only signing Watford made the season after winning promotion to the First Division in 1982. He joined from non-league Burton Albion in the October, and went on to enjoy a long career in the game.
Muir Stratford was one of the directors who saw it all. He had been on the board under Jim Bonser, he saw Elton John arrive, he went on the incredible journey from the Fourth Division to the top, and then he witnessed the ill-fated recruitment of Graham Taylor’s replacement.
For the second interview, I had a trip to Manchester to cover some cycling. Someone I knew at Manchester United had put me in touch with Tony Coton and he agreed to meet me one February afternoon in 2009.
Les Taylor was the first person interviewed for Enjoy the Game, in January 2009 at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford, before Lionel was even certain the book would go ahead.
Only three players have made more appearances for the Hornets than Gary Porter, who first came down to Watford from the north east during the school holidays. He was one of the ones who made it and made his first team debut in late 1983.
