10th August 2010-League Cup First Round, Aldershot Town 0 Watford 3

Scott Loach warmed the bench two nights running, the first at the Recreation Ground and the second at the more glamorous surroundings of Wembley Stadium.   Rene Gilmartin made his Watford debut for this League Cup game whilst Scott was an unused sub.  The following day Ben Foster withdrew from the England squad to play Hungary and Fabio Capello called Loach up as a late replacement.  He didn’t play as England won 2-1.

Danny Graham bagged another brace as Watford eased into the second round of the Carling Cup with victory over Aldershot. The 24-year-old striker netted twice in Watford’s opening day win at Norwich and repeated the feat against the League Two side, scoring either side of Marvin Sordell’s effort. Manager Malky Mackay made just one change from Friday’s Championship opener. Rene Gilmartin replaced Scott Loach in goal after the 22-year-old received a late call up to Fabio Capello’s England squad for Wednesday’s friendly with Hungary.

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.
