Watford have confirmed they will erect a statue in honour of Graham Taylor, the club's most successful manager ever.
A second tribute will be arranged as an annual pre-season fixture in memory of the former England manager, who passed away in January.
Taylor was first appointed manager of the Hornets by Elton John back in 1977, where he took the club from Fourth Division obscurity to the UEFA Cup in just six years. He then steered them to the FA Cup final the following year.

GRAHAM TAYLOR'S LIFE IN FOOTBALL
1962–1968: Grimsby Town 189 games
1968–1972: Lincoln City 150 games
1972–1977: Lincoln City
1987–1990: Aston Villa
1994–1995: Wolverhampton Wanderers
2002–2003: Aston Villa
After a 10-year stint at the club, Taylor went on to manage club sides Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as bagging the England job in the early 1990s.
During his second spell in charge at Vicarage Road between 1996 and 2001, he recovered his golden touch and achieved back-to-back promotions to get the club to the Premier League.
Taylor began his footballing career as a young player with Scunthorpe and also represented Grimsby and Lincoln before moving into management with the latter.
After a glowing career in management, he called it a day in 2003 following his second spell in charge of the Midlands club.
He later became a respected pundit with the BBC and BT Sport. But it was at Watford where Taylor’s managerial career really took off after cutting his teeth with Lincoln.
Taylor was also awarded an OBE for his services to football in 2002 in recognition of his work in the sport for 40 years.
