    Anyone know how to get hold of any old BM footage of watford ? We used to feature quite a lot but cant find any / many online.

    in particular, i seem to recall us beating Leicester City in 1969 in the old Div 2 - we had just come up and they had just come down, so it must have been Aug / Sept ?

    there were quite a few other times we were featured, especially in the early days of GT in division 4 - newport ?

    Am surprised there is no record of some of the Big Match footage - was an excellent regional programme

    About ten years ago ITV4 ran a series of The Big Match revisited covering a single season (about 1983) so I’m sure those must be available. Of course the network franchise back then was London Weekend Television which ended in the 90s I think, so I don’t know if all the older stuff, back to the 60s would even still exist in ITV archives.

    I was there too. Keith Eddy with a penalty on 90 minutes then Leicester (David Nish, I think) gave the ball away straight from the kick off and we scored the winner.
