100 greatest100 Greatest Watford wins- No.16: Borough Park in Workington was no place for a party. Hardly anyone had made the trip from Hertfordshire to witness Watford clinch their first Football League promotion. The gate was just over 3,000.

16th April 1960- Division Four, Watford 5 Gateshead 0
