Vicarage Road played host to the 2019-20 Professional Development League South opening game between Watford and the Tigers, and things went very well for the new-look Hornets U23s come half time.
Crichlow helped to open the scoring as he slalomed his way into the Hull box before laying the ball off to the number seven, the trialist rifling into the top corner of the opposition net with a sweet strike.
The 18-year-old forward then got a goal of his own as he connected with Marvin Zeegelaar's low cross into the six-yard box to fire unmarked into the top corner, ensuring a 2-0 half-time lead for Hayden Mullins' side.
Zeegelaar and Joseph Hungbo further extended the advantage in the second half and Crichlow's second rounded off the win with ten minutes to go, the teenager volleying home Callum Whelan's corner.
Crichlow, a Bermuda youth international who linked up with the Under-23s on a two-year contract just a few months ago, saw several praiseworthy comments come his way during and after the game:
