13th April 1998- New Division Two, Bristol City 1 Watford 1

This draw ensured our promotion back to (new) Division One. It was the fourth time a Watford side managed by Graham Taylor had been promoted.


So this was a great day out…but it wasn’t quite a promotion day. It was a day of broad grins and jubilant songs, not dips in the High Street pond or drunken debauchery.

13th April 1996- New Division One, Watford 5 Port Vale 2


The big news before the game was that Hessy wasn’t in the side and instead young David Conolly (he’s only 18 or so – God I feel old) was wearing the number 4 shirt. To be totally honest this had ‘Grim Disaster’ written all over it, especially considering Vale’s recent good form.
