On this date in Watford FC's history

Captain Dennis Bond's decision to kick into a strong wind proved crucial as Watford entertained Charlton Athletic in the third division.
By the time the Hornets had the wind behind them they were three down, Leo Markham having failed to cope with the attentions of future Hornet Arthur Horsfield.
Pat Morrissey's consolation was set up by Stewart Scullion, making his second debut for the club having re-joined from Sheffield United the previous week.
