Watford’s bosses wanted to thank their supporters

The team has a very successful English Premier League campaign and reached the FA Cup Final for the first time in history.

The 2018-2019 campaign could be one for the record books for English Premier League side Watford.

The team ended in the 11th position of the table with 50 points, just seven points away from European spots. The Hornets won 14 matches, drew eight, and lost in 16 occasions.

And they also reached the FA Cup Final where they lost the title against Manchester City.

But according to Gino Pozzo, and Scott Duxbury, Watford’s owner, and chairman, it was all thanks to the team’s supporters.

Top 5 – Performers in the Premier League this weekend

It is that time of the week again - we are naming our best five performers in top-flight English football this weekend.

“To all Watford supporters around the world – and especially those 32,500 of our fans inside Wembley Stadium yesterday for the FA Cup Final – we offer our sincere thanks for your unwavering unity with the team, our coach, the players, and the club,” they wrote on the club’s official website.

“It was humbling not just to witness a sea of flags accompanied by proud voices everywhere across our half of the stadium, but then to also look around the Royal Box and notice the applause being offered towards the actions of our supporters.”

They added: “This moment truly served to put into context just how far we have come together as a football club. We said right back in 2012 that if we are together then we can achieve great things. We have – and we will continue to do so.”

“The achievement of reaching an FA Cup Final and having a chance to compete for one of just three titles available to clubs inside the confines of this country should never be diminished by yesterday’s game itself or indeed the final scoreline.”

“This is just the start of the club’s journey competing against the best. We may not always be able to be successful, like yesterday, but we will not go away and will return unbowed, with renewed vigor and determination, to improve on the feats of this season,” they concluded.
