23rd July 2008- Friendly, Wealdstone 3 Watford XI 1

This was the first game played at Wealdstone’s new home Grosvenor Vale.

Despite the programme implying this was a full strength Watford team, it was very much a second string as the first team had played the previous night at Boreham Wood.

Wealdstone FC website:  Those intrepid fans who had kept Wealdstone Football Club alive and kicking (if only just) for the last 17 nomadic years could not have wished for a better start to this latest chapter in the club’s history. The sun was shining, the newly levelled and re-seeded pitch looked like a bowling green, the areas surrounding the pitch looked new and gleaming courtesy of the hard work put in by many over the last 3 months, and near neighbours Watford had agreed to be the most attractive of opposition for this important occasion.

Hornblogger: The ‘Stones more than earned their win. Two cracking goals past Scott Loach early on were well deserved. We got one back before half time but then scored a bizarre own goal to ensure the home side got the new ground off and running in the right way.
