Elton John returns to Watford… again

by | 26th, March 2009

ELTON John is back in football, for a third spell at Watford (or ‘Queen of the South’ as Tommy Docherty famously suggested they be renamed during John’s first stint at the club).

The pop legend ended his second spell as chairman of the Hornets in 2002 but is back on board to join former manager Graham Taylor in a presidency role.

He said: “Watford football club is in my blood. Wherever I am in the world I cannot resist keeping up with the news.

“I wish the new chairman and board, the manager, the team and all Watford’s loyal supporters a very successful conclusion to the season.”
