We caught up with Thomas James.  Designer, illustrator and Watford fan to talk about Blaupunkt shirts and Nick Wright scoring an overhead kick at Wembley.

What was your first football shirt?


My first shirt was the 1995-96 Watford home shirt.  Sponsored by Blaupunkt and made by Mizuno.

What is your favourite football shirt?


The Watford 2014-2015 Away football shirt. The black and white stripes as a tribute to the first kit worn back in 1914, remembering those who died at war.
