Watford Observer: On this day in south west Hertfordshire On this day in south west Hertfordshire

It was a strange Watford team which turned out as visitors to the Crystal Palace on Saturday.

At the last moment, manager W Findlay, unable to find a left winger, had to don a blue jersey and white shorts himself.

NOSTALGIA NOTE: It didn't do any good; Palace won the game 6-1.
