Watford's second tour to China kicked off with a 1-0 win over a North Korea xI in the Great Wall Cup, Worrell Sterling grabbing the goal.

With new boss Dave Bassett not on the tour, soon-to-depart physio Billy Hails took charge of the side that went on to secure a trophy that proved too large for any of Vicarage Road's trophy cabinets.
