Watford O 4-0 Cheshunt – Howard 2, Steve and the best goal from Graham.  Graham actually scored a virtually identical second goal which was unfortunately disallowed for running.  Graham has asked for VAR…

Results:

Watford Y 1-1 Feltham – a very fine ’round the keeper’ finish from Tony rolling back the years. Feltham better team in 2nd half but we held steady.

STEVE HARRINGTON = Man of the Match for Yellows
