This game commemorated Hemel Hempstead’s centenary. Watford played less than 24 hours after beating Luton Town 3-0. Kenny Jackett, Jimmy Gilligan David Bardsley and Steve Terry took part in both games with the latter two playing the full 90 minutes of each.
The YouTube video shows a couple of seconds of our game with Crystal Palace. The results sheet has a few mistakes. Chelsea withdrew so Charlton had a bye to the second round. We beat Palace but lost to Charlton who then lost to eventually winners QPR in the semi finals.
