21st December 1996- New Division Two, Watford 0 Gillingham 0

I can’t explain why I’m still going to Watford matches. I wish I could rationalise it – it might make all the frustration a little easier to deal with. But there’s no reason to be at Vicarage Road, sitting week after week watching an average side grind out yet another draw and slide a little further away from the all-important automatic promotion places. It’s just blind loyalty, nothing more. I’m there because I’ve always been there. The club would do well to capitalise on that loyalty before it turns into utter indifference.

21st December 1968- Division Three, Barrow 1 Watford 4

This was the last time we’d play Barrow before they were voted out of the Football League in 1972. They returned just under 40 years later being promoted as National League champions in 2020/21.
