'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Aidy gets his man as Ellington signs

It`s third time lucky for the Good Ship Boothroyd as the Watford supreme has finally netted goal machine Nathan Ellington for a club record initial transfer fee of 3.25m.

The 26 year old Bradford born striker, nicknamed The Duke (after the influential Jazz musician of the same name), had been heavily linked to a move to Charlton or a return to Wigan by the red-tops but has finally put to pen to paper on a 4 year deal at the Vic to end his Hawthorns nightmare.

On the official club site, Sir Aidy claimed Ellington is a 'the big one, the key piece in the jigsaw` and its easy to see why as the ex Bristol Rovers, Wigan and West Brom striker has strength, pace, 2 great feet and, most importantly, an eye for goal - netting over 130 times in his career.

Boothroyd went on to add "He (Nathan) can score all types of goals, with his left foot, right foot, headers, tap-ins, goals from outside the box and he could prove to be really potent for us".

Ellington is now expected to start alongside Marlon King in Saturday`s home clash against Ipswich Town.

Bring on the tractor boys, I say.
