Watford are back in the Premier League. Nine months after they were relegated, the Hornets have bounced back at the first time of asking thanks to their 1-0 victory over Millwall.

Six years ago today the Hornets were also celebrating a return to the big time after a longer absence following a never-to-be-forgotten day at Brighton & Hove Albion that continued long into the evening as fans spilled out onto the streets while others made their way back from the south coast.

But then it was confirmed...Watford were a Premier League club for the third time. 

And after conducting a few short interviews, the Hornets’ players headed into Watford town centre to celebrate.


And after the celebrations had died down on Sunday, Ikechi Anya asked for help from the Hornets faithful...
