Month: July 2003

19th July 2003- Friendly, Aldershot Town 0 Watford 3

The first pre-season match always feels like waking up from a dream, and in a dozy state gradually recognising the familiar things around you. And it’s the familiar things that are in a way the most gratifying… Robbo quickly incurring an (albeit tame) chorus of boos from the Shots fans for some zealous early challenges, Marcus Gayle imperiously mopping up anything that Aldershot make the mistake of lobbing within range of his head, Don Fraser bawling lonely encouragement and Rupe rolling up at half-time looking as if he’s just got up.
