9th January 1960- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 2 Birmingham City 1

The 100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.40: Watford prepared to take on First Division Birmingham City with a three-day trip to Margate, where they worked on stopping the threat posed by winger Harry Hooper. They spent a lot of time running at the full-back Bobby Bell, preparing him for the potential onslaught from the fast and direct winger. The team’s pre-match meal was steak and chips at the One Crown pub in the town. It obviously worked because after 20 minutes they were 2-0 up.
