    Hello all

    As per the attached picture I have these amazing autographs from c.1984/85

    I know who the vast majority are, but I am looking for your help please in identifying the last three (as highlighted in yellow) as well as any information you may have about them?

    There are also a couple of other much clearer autographs (as highlighted in blue) for Gregory Morris & Rob Wignall who I can’t find anything about either – anyone know of them?

    My thinking based on others is that they may have been youth players who never actually made their full debut, but I’m guessing really!

    Any knowledge/insight you could share with me would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    If you think some of these might be youth players, have you tried trawling through oldwatford.com? It has images of old programmes season by season and you might find team photos of WFC youth teams from that period. Most other sources won’t have records of players who never made the first team.

    Possibly Clint Easton just above Wignall although does look like Craig

    He was still writing his name in Crayola when most of those other names were playing

    One could be Neil Doherty who started at Watford but never played I think. Might be him if he combined the l of Neil with a lower case d for Doherty

    Thanks for all your views/comments on this thread. I found the attached picture which shows 4 of the 5 in a team photo! This was in 1987 so I was a bit out with my years. Thanks again

    Gary Eaton's signature doesn't look much like "Gary" does it? More like Granny Eaton :)
