That’s the club’s core support right there – after all, roughly the same number turned up to see us against Crewe and Stockport, back when we were a good bet for some breezy Saturday afternoon entertainment.

This game commemorated Hemel Hempstead’s centenary. Watford played less than 24 hours after beating Luton Town 3-0. Kenny Jackett, Jimmy Gilligan David Bardsley and Steve Terry took part in both games with the latter two playing the full 90 minutes of each.
