This Is Local London: On this date in Watford FC's history On this date in Watford FC's history

Wednesday, December 7, 1983

Watford played what is to date their last game in European competition, bowing out of the UEFA Cup in Prague.

Sparta were already 3-2 up from the first leg, and proved more able to cope with the frozen conditions, winning 4-0 on the night.

Young right-back Nigel Gibbs was later to comment: "It was sickening how good they looked on that surface."

The game provided a debut for Francis Cassidy, a few minutes as substitute constituting his entire first team career at the club.
