Watford Observer readers have been sharing their photos with famous faces - and sports stars have proved a popular theme.

John Hickson met Alan Smith, pictured at the top of this page, at Vicarage Road in September 2019 after the former Arsenal striker had just finished commentating on a game. John, from Croxley Green, said they chatted about the Gunners and them manager Unai Emery.

Harrow Times:

Harrow Times:

You never know who you might bump into in a pub. This picture was taken last year after Marc Saunders from Abbots Langley walked into a pub where he met England cricket star Jonny Bairstow.

The batsman was almost England’s hero on Wednesday when he scored a superb 112 in the final One-Day International, but Australia won the series with a thrilling three-wicket victory at Old Trafford.

This is James Azzopardi pictured with Everton and former Arsenal footballer Alex Iwobi back in 2017.

James, from Watford, explained: “When I used to work at TopGolf Alex Iwobi use to be a regular there. One day I had courage to ask him for a photo and autograph.”
