Watford youth player Reece Miller suspended after allegedly being involved in Royal Ascot 10-man brawl

26 Jun

Watford have suspended one of their players amid allegations he was involved in a 10-man brawl at Royal Ascot.

The Hornets made the decision to suspended academy player Reece Miller upon seeing video footage of the fight, the club confirmed in a statement to The Sun.

Miller is described on Watford’s website as a ‘strong and powerful centre-forward’

“We are treating this matter with the utmost seriousness” a Watford spokesperson said. “The club will not tolerate any behaviour which tarnishes its image and a full disciplinary investigation is now in process.

“As soon as the footage was brought to the club’s attention, an immediate decision was taken to suspend the player.

“He will now face an inquiry with all disciplinary options available to the club. There will be no further comment until the investigation is completed.”

Miller, a third-year academy striker, was allegedly part of the fight which broke out at the race meet last Friday as the Queen watched her horses nearby.

A video of the brawl was widely shared online, and Miller is understood to be wearing a pinstripe suit and a flat cap in the footage.

He was also caught on camera posing with The Sun’s coverage of the brawl, with one of the youngster’s friends admitting his disgust at such actions.

“I thought the fact they were posing about it after was pretty disgusting,” said Miller’s friend.

“There were women in the video and Ascot is a family event and I saw one was KO’d.

“I thought it was disgusting and embarrassing.

“I just thought, ‘imagine if that was my Mum or sister’ and they were all trying to show who was the bigger man. It was a bit embarrassing really. It’s not the first time there’s been violence like this at Ascot.”
