2nd May 2004 Challenge Cup Final Hadley Rangers 1 - 0 NWR (aet)
Nascotwood Rangers narrowly lost the Challenge Cup Final to a very strong Hadley team 1 - 0 after extra time. The goal, which was an unstoppable deflection, came in the last minute. However, Nascotwood were really unlucky not to have scored, and in fact both goalkeeper had to bring out the best of their abilities to keep the opposition from scoring. Nascotwood showed character and resilience, battling to the last. Well done guys, you are all a credit to the club. (Graham Willerton)

November 2nd 2003 The Whites results to date this season :
The first of our round robin games to allocate us our division was played on a sunny Sunday 14th September away at London Colney Colts where we were eventual winners by 3-0 Charlie Hart,Lewis Pearse and Mack Harter netting for us.
Our next game pitted us at home at Watford Cricket Ground, Tanasheh Abrahams scored the first of his 8 goals after barely 5 seconds on the clock, the quickest goal I have seen to date, Mack Harter scored two more goals and Charlie Hart completed the rout of Chorlywood Blue, making us eventual winners by 12 -0.
Sunday 28th September saw us play away to Whetstone Wildcats, and after a goalless first half saw us nudge ahead early in the second half with a brace from Lewis pearse and one a piece for Tanasheh Abrahams and our Captain Gregory Speed, taking us to an eventual win by 4-0.
October 5th saw us play at home to Northwood as the league rankings were beginning to take shape, Thomas Eaton headed us ahead with a fine goal in the first half and was followed up in the second half with a delicately taken lob by Tanasheh Abrahams making us eventual winners by 2-0.
!2th October Saw our first defeat of the season against a very efficient Goffs Oak side, who proved to be the best team in our league and eventually went on to win it without losing a single game, Tanasheh Abrahams scored a brace for us on the day which see us go down 2-4.
19th October and a handsome 10-0 win over London Road B with Gregory Speed scoring four goals for us on the day, Lewis pearse also chipped in with a Hatrick.
26th October was crunch time, we were away to our nearest rivals in the group and a win would have put us second in the league by rights, however it wasn't to be, Wood Rangers proved to be stern opposition and a very eventful and exciting match proved to goalless, and we finished our round robin games just behind Wood Rangers on Goal difference.
Our efforts were rewarded when we were promoted to the Second Division (White) having played in the Blue division Last year as the under eights.
We are realistic enough to understand that this will be a tough season ahead against many new teams to us that we haven't played yet.
Our first game in the White Division saw us play a very good Whetstone Lynx side at home, and after taking the lead in the first half with an unfavoured right foot shot from Tanasheh Abrahams cutting in from the left, this proved to be the winner after Whetstone pushed us back for long periods in the second half, but after a few heart stopping moments and some good saves from our keeper Jake Tommey, we held out for the 1-0 win.
Lol Wright runs the White team and John Arnold is running the Blue team, we are in the White and Yellow Leagues respectively.
We train at Radlett Road on Saturday mornings. Our home ground is Watford Cricket Club
