Watford's Deeney gets 10-month jail term

Watford striker Troy Deeney has received a 10-month prison sentence as a result of a nightclub fracas.

The 23-year old pleaded guilty to affray and has been jailed for just under a year after he was caught on CCTV kicking the head of a student outside a nightclub in Birmingham.

Deeney was sentenced along with three other men, one of which is his younger brother Ellis Deeney.

Judge David Tomlinson of Birmingham Crown Court told the defendants: "Three men in particular were singled out for what can only be described as a gratuitous beating.

"All four of you to a greater or lesser degree joined in but the effect of it was that these three men, who were already heavily outnumbered, became even more so as a result of what you all did.

"At least one kicked a man while he was already on the ground and very probably had already suffered a really serious injury."
