The Club are extremely sad and devastated to report that our Chairman, President and loyal life-long supporter Derek Nuttall; 89 - who served us with great distinction - un-expectedly passed away this morning, Wednesday 19th October 2016. This news has come as a massive shock to Derek's immediate family, us all here at the Club and the wider non-league football community the length and breadth of the country; where Derek was hugely respected.
Our supporters' open meeting took place on Thursday 20th October 2016; as this is what Derek would have wanted. A chair was left empty in honour of Derek at the head of the table at the meeting.
PICTURED - Derek with a Watford Football Club pennant, which was given to the Club when we played and defeated the Hornets in our incredible run to the F.A Cup fourth round in season 1976/77. The pennant was personally signed by Hornets' chairman and legendary singer Elton John; wishing the Vics' all the very best of luck in the competition and beyond.
Derek pictured most recently earlier this year.
