Watford Ladies family fun day

Watford Ladies are excited to announce that the home fixture against Millwall Lionesses on Sunday August 28 has been designated Family Fun Day.

The turnstiles at Berkhamsted FC will open two hours before the 2pm kick-off, with plenty of fun activities to keep the whole family entertained, and there’ll be free entry for all Watford FC 2016/17 season ticket holders who bring their Season Card to the game.

Harry the Hornet will be there and some great prizes and signed items will be up for grabs on the day, plus there’ll be the opportunity to cheer on the Golden Girls as they host Millwall in an exciting WSL 2 clash.

Keep an eye out for the Watford Ladies players, who will be present in the Vicarage Road concourses at the forthcoming Premier League games with Chelsea and Arsenal to meet fans and answer any questions you might have about the Family Fun Day.

Under-23 & Under-18 2016/17 fixtures confirmed

Fixtures for the Hornets' Under-23 and Under-18 teams during the 2016/17 season have been released.

The Under-21 Professional Development League, which Watford competed in last season, has been realigned with the newly-formed Premier League 2, and will therefore now move to the Under-23 age parameters.

This means players born on or after January 1, 1993, will now be eligible, while clubs are also able to nominate three over-age outfield players as well as one over-age goalkeeper as part of a matchday teamsheet.

See below for full fixture lists for both the Under-23s and Under-18s.
