Bruv’s Jimmy and Vince has always maintained they would fight off and beat Mark Cashton as the former Hornet’s Cheif Exec. tried to fleece the club for 300k for a ‘breech of contract’.

The former Wycombe and West Brom money grabber left shortly after former Chairman Graham Simpson having no doubt swiped the last few pennies from the club’s diminshed coffers.

Watford have this evening confirmed Ashton has withdrawn his high court claim and will now a significant amount towards Watford’s legal costs for the case – a nice gesture!

New Cheif Exec. and thoroughly affable chap, Julian Winter had this to say: ‘Throughout the club has maintained Mr Ashton’s claims were without merit. I am pleased Mr Ashton has withdrawn his claim and will be reimbursing the club for some of the costs incurred.’

A huge collective sigh of relief was no doubt in order as another 300k to pay out was the last thing Jimmy and Vince needed.
