Because the game was played at 12.15pm we had to wait for the 3pm kick offs to finish before it was confirmed we’d been promoted. The players found out whilst on the coach going back to Watford.
Football is about waiting for moments that might never arrive, about playing them through in your imagination over and over, about being there to see if it happens…and then finding Matej Vydra taking what seems like an age to control the ball, threatening to let that moment slip away, and then sliding it calmly into the bottom corner before the whole world turns yellow and red and inside out and upside down.
The Watford Observer produced a supplement marking the Hornets promotion which included several pictures from the game and the celebrations that followed.
