Watford were demoted after playing off against Brighton & Hove Albion 111 years ago today
5:30am Sunday 27th April 2014 in Sport
Monday, April 27, 1903
Having already finished second from bottom of the first division of the Southern League, Watford played Brighton & Hove Albion in a 'test match' at West Ham United to determine whether Brighton would replace Watford in the top division.
Having gone three goals behind, Watford pulled level only to lose the tie 5-3 and so relinquish their top-flight status.
