WGC were very grateful to Herts County League neighbours Knebworth for filling the vacancy left by Watford’s late withdrawal on Friday, after the Premier Division outfit pulled out 24 hours before their scheduled pre-season fixture, amid such controversy.
Knebworth offered Adam Fisher’s side a game at very short notice and although they were no match for a WGC side in a one-sided affair, all at the BP Mitchell Stadium were very grateful to the village club.
Dan Bond got a hat-trick and there were further goals from George Ironton, Adam Hunt, Jay Rolfe, Josh Bronti and newcomer Tony Williams, as the Citizens piled on the pressure late in the game.
*WGC will complete their pre-season preparations with a Friday night fixture at AFC Dunstable, this Friday, Aug 10 (7-45pm kick-off).
WGC (starting line-up) v Knebworth: Green, Hunt, Rolfe, Corran, Holmes, Payne, Close, Spaul, Ironton, Bond, Clements. Subs:- Elliott, Sexton, Bronti, Joy and Williams (all used second-half).
