  • Tales From The Vicarage - Rocket Men, By Oliver Phillips and Mike Walters.

    Featuring Luther Blissett, Ian Bolton, Ross Jenkins & Steve Sherwood.

    New Writing on Watford FC's past and present.

    In the summer of 1977, Graham Taylor took over as manager of Watford, a Fourth Division club unremarkable except for their rock-star owner, Elton John. Within six years, Taylor had taken them into the top flight to finish as runners-up in the league, the second-best team in the land.

    Four heroes - goalkeeper Steve Sherwood, defender Ian Bolton and striker Ross Jenkins and Luther Blissett - played in all four divisions during that extraordinary journey. They were Taylor's Rocket Men, the legends behind one of English football's greatest feel-good adventures.

    This sixth volume of Tales From The Vicarage contains exclusive interviews with all four and charts the Hornets' stratospheric rise through the divisions. With a foreword from John Barnes, who played his own part in the journey, Rocket Men is another fascinating collection for Watford supporters' bookshelves.

    £1 from every copy of Rocket Men sold will be donated to KitAid in agreement with Graham Taylor's family.
