25th November 2000- New Division One, Watford v Burnley- Match postponed

About an hour before kick off the heavens opened and the Vicarage Road pitch, which was three years in to its stint of having to cope with the egg chasers as well as the round ball game, was completely deluged.  Shortly after 3pm it was announced the referee had deemed the pitch unplayable.  The rearranged game didn’t take place until April and a new programme was issued.

A few weeks later in Issue 23 of the fanzine ‘The Yellow Experience’ an American fan  told of how he had travelled 5500 miles for the game.
