1969-70 Football Combination Cup Final deferred to next season:

70_01_10 WHU v. Bournemouth Reserves 70_01_24 WHU v. Queens Park Rangers

At Reading we lost a Combination Cup engagement by two clear goals when we should have returned with at least a point although there was a touch of " offside " about the second counter.

Against Fulham at Craven Cottage we improved sufficiently to collect two league points, but should have won more easily. A long throw by Roger Cross was converted by Peter Bennett after a goalless first half. The homesters then equalised, and it was not until the closing minutes that Dave Llewelyn netted the winner from a pass by Tony Carr (who came on as substitute ten minutes from the end).

Returning to the league schedule we beat Bournemouth Reserves (the current chief rival in our Cup group). With three of the previous week's First XI line - up in the side, we underlined a 3-1 interval advantage with a further trio of goals in the second-half, and the Hammers won most convincingly.
