Whilst the class of 2011/12 were busy trying to impress new boss Sean Dyche in Watford’s fist pre-season fixture of the season at Borehamwood, a few miles away at a packed Wembley Arena a team that have nothing to prove were storming their way to an impressive victory.
Under the captaincy of Watford legend (Sir) Tommy Mooney, the Watford team that took part in the Selco London Masters was always going to be a competitive and well organised outfit. In their first game against “North London giants” Arsenal, It quickly became clear that the team of Kevin Miller, Marcus Gayle, Derek Payne, Craig Ramage, Steve Palmer, Nick Wright, Micah Hyde and captain Mooney were much more than competitive.
