|English FA Cup Semi-Final|
Month: April 2003
BSAD report:To put this game into the perspective, it demands a flick through Trefor Jones, and to an era that I would be amazed if anyone in the away end on Saturday remembered. In 1937, Watford were managed by Neil McBain. We finished fourth in the old Division Three (South), and on April 10th that year, the players completed a league double over Torquay by winning 7-4 at Plainmoor. Only 2,277 watched the game, and one would hazard a guess that of those, only a handful would have been Watford fans.
Another BSAD report:Living in the north east, when the Golden Boys come to town it is an occasion not to be missed, so when the Academy Under 17 side was drawn away to Newcastle United last Saturday, my son Josh and I felt we had to be there instead of…you’ve guessed it…traipsing down to Burnley.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.61: Seven days before an FA Cup semi-final against Southampton, Watford went goal crazy at Turf Moor. They had only scored 12 times away from home all season but the arrival of Michael Chopra, a 19-year-old poacher with an eye for goal, on loan from Newcastle gave them a huge boost before the cup tie.
