Apple tree pruning - water shoots

Here's one for you all: Last winter I pruned all dozen or so oldish apple trees and they've mostly fruited very well.  However, several of them have produced a lot of water shoots which I neglected to prune off in June.  Is it too late to do it now?

They're James Grieve, Holstein (yum - highly recommended!) and Crispin; all spur-bearers.
