Though he won’t go down as the greatest Hornet ever, Matt Jackson will be a loss to the professional game.

The former Everton, Wigan and Norwich centre half has today retired at the age of 36 after some 17 years in the game. Jackson also won an F.A Cup Winners Medal whilst on the books at Everton.

His time at Watford was short, and interrupted by a loan spell at Blackpool before he’d even made his Hornets league debut, but on his return the veteran was a solid addition for 8 games. At the end of the season, Jackson was amongst a party of 8 told they had no future in WD18, since then there have been no takers and Jackson has opted for an early retirement.

Good luck in the future Matt!
