Ten pictures recalling Jenkins’ rise with Watford
Big centre forwards were one of the hallmarks of Watford’s golden era under Graham Taylor. George Reilly and Mark Falco were among those who followed but the first was Ross Jenkins.
Signed from Crystal Palace for £30,000 in November 1972, Jenkins scored only 17 goals in his first three seasons at Vicarage Road and was transfer listed at the end of the 1974/75 season.
But Jenkins remained at Watford and was to win over the boo boys as he became an integral part of the club’s rise up the divisions, scoring a total of 142 goals in just shy of 400 appearances in all competitions for the club.
It seems almost unthinkable in the context of how football has developed since, but Jenkins played for the Hornets when they both rock bottom of Division Four and at the summit of Division One.
Here are some memories in pictures from our archive of Ross Jenkins’ career at Vicarage Road for you to enjoy again.
