The Alec Chamberlain Golf Day was another big testimonial success - with Alec himself among the prize winners.
There were 21 teams of four, with Luther Blisset included among Watford favourites past and present joining in the fun. Indeed, former Hornets player and coach Nigel Gibbs won the prize for the shot nearest the pin at the 4th hole - Gibbsy playing with three Fulham players, including another ex-Watford star, Heidar Helguson. Two Marks - Crossley and Pembridge - completed that team. Among other players were former team-mates of Alecs': Paul Robinson (ex Watford now WBA) Richard Harvey (ex Luton), Eddie Murray (ex-Tranmere), Kevin Miller (ex Watford now Southampton) and goalkeeper Danny Naisbitt (ex Barnet now Cambridge City)
Alec won his prize for the shot nearest the pin at the 6th - with Watford accademy coach Chris Cummins, fellow goalkeeper Ben Foster, Dominic Blizzard, Jay Demerit the other current Watford players joining in the fun. Also present were Gary Holt (Notts Forest), and ex Northants cricketer Greg Thomas.
After the golf came dinner, which also included prize giving, a raffle and a short auction, all compered by Steve Brooks.
"It was a great day, and the course was fantastic," said Alec. "Clive Dodman and his staff at the West Herts Golf Club did us proud with the condition of the course and the catering. Richard Drake from the Putting Academy was a great help with providing raffle items, and he also helped out on the day with organisation. And Steve Brooks did a superb job as compere during the dinner."
