With the new home strip already launched about a month or so ago, Watford decided to make a gesture whilst they unveiled another new football kit.
Indeed, the Hornets have sent their new away kit to every fan who went to all 19 away games last season for free with a message from Troy Deeney.
Check out a sneak peak of the Watford football shirt design below…

The letter from Deeney reads:
“Just a quick note to say a big thanks from me and all the lads for being there for us without exception last season. Thanks from the club and FXPro as well, because they’ve sorted this out for you. I know some of you getting this might not be the type to wear replica shirts but find a good home for it among family and friends and remind them that you receiving it is attached to a lot of pride in our club. Supporting the biggest clubs in the country is easy, You don’t have to be there all the time – you can watch them on telly and say you’re a fan. It’s different with us and that’s why we wanted you to know that it matters. And if you do the social media stuff, send Watford a picture or video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram… and we’ll share them so everyone knows you were with us all the way last year. All 19 games. That’s a decent effort by the way. We’ll see you soon. Not long until it all starts again. Cheers for now, Troy.”
The new kit will no doubt be expected in due course, but this is a brilliant and unique way to get the first images spread across social media and to give something back their travelling fans.
