Hornets seek Elton lifeline
Sir Elton John left Watford in May
Sir Elton John stepped down in May
Watford have appealed to former chairman Sir Elton John to help them escape their financial problems.

The Hornets need to raise 9.5million to stay afloat for the next two years despite players and staff agreeing to a wage deferral earlier this season.

Current chairman Graham Simpson has written to the millionaire singer asking for support, but has yet to hear back from him.

Sir Elton stepped down in May, but remains a life president of the club.
