  1. That sounds great Mark, I really appreciate it. Just a thought, if you know one of the guys in the pic he may want to contact me and let us know how his football career spanned out after 1982. It should make for a good story. Your website looks great. Thanks again

  2. @ Stretford Enders, would you like to hazard a guess?

    I seem to think that the first guy standing on the left COULD be Clayton Blackmore but not certain while I’m sure that sitting in the middle third from the left is Graeme Hogg.

  3. Believe it or not you can see the goals at Vicarage Road on YouTube!

    Or just search for it.

    1st Leg Man Utd 2 – 3 Watford 26/04/82?
    2nd Leg Watford 4 – 4 Man Utd

    – Mike

  4. I recognise a few and I’ll send the pic to one of the players included in the pic.
    I’ll post you some info asap

  5. … in fact if you visit Wikipedia it lists the players for the 2nd Leg at Watford:


    GK Phil Hughes
    2 DF Andy Hill
    3 DF Ken Scott
    4 DF Graeme Hogg (c)
    5 DF Billy Garton
    6 MF Clayton Blackmore
    7 MF Lawrence Pearson
    8 MF Mark Dempsey
    9 FW Norman Whiteside
    10 FW Mark Hughes
    11 MF Peter Docherty
    Sub FW Nicky Wood
    Sub MF Sean Williams
    Manager Eric Harrison

    Hope this helps???

    (PS Whatever happened to Mark Hughes …)

  6. Thanks Mikey, that youtube video is gold. Yes mate, wikipedia is where I got the squad from BUT be careful. While it’s generally a reliable site, I have also picked up a couple of major errors on it.

    A little confused about your Mark Hughes comment! He had a very high profile career.

  7. Mark Dempsey is to the right of Graham Hogg.

    im just comparing the photo to any of the players who played from 1982 onwards that look familiar on my player profile pages. If they diodnt play for ther 1st team im goiong to struggle.

    I will however forward it one of the guys and get back to you
