Watford Observer: On this date in Watford FC's history On this date in Watford FC's history

Wednesday, December 25, 1940

The vagaries of wartime football saw Watford face Luton Town twice on the same day in the South Regional League.

The first game at Luton in the morning resulted in a 2-2 draw; the return match in the afternoon finished 4-1 to the visitors.

Harry Lewis scored all of Watford's goals on the day, netting a penalty kick in each game.
