Watford boss Boothroyd in clear for play-off final

May 12, 2006

The Football Association have confirmed Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd and will not face disciplinary action following the mass brawl during Tuesday's play-off semi-final second leg against Crystal Palace.

Boothroyd was involved in an angry confrontation with Palace duo Fitz Hall and Tom Soares that sparked the skirmish and it was feared he could miss the Championship play-off final against Leeds on May 21.

The club, however, have been charged with misconduct and failure to control their players and have until May 26 to respond or request a personal hearing.
