ROY MOORE

Roy established The 1881 Movement to improve the matchday experience for Watford FC fans.  He is unpaid and his dedication and devotion to the club and town are legendary.  He raises funds for the many fan displays at the club including the largest Rainbow Laces display in the country.  Roy also organised a banner display for the away match at Leicester, showing sympathy to Leicester after the tragic loss of their owner.  The 1881 raised more funds than was needed so the rest of the funds were donated to Leicester good causes.  A huge amount of work was also put into the impressive displays at this years’ FA cup semi-final and final.  The 1881 Movement also run a food bank and organise Christmas gifts for children in Watford General Hospital.
