Gary Woods: Pleased to have signed Watford contract

The former Manchester United trainee had been training with the Hornets since August following his release from Doncaster earlier in the summer.

The 22-year-old was a mainstay in Rovers' League One title-winning side last season, making 49 appearances for the club.

He told Watford's official website: "It's good to get things done as it's been a long summer. I felt this move was right for me and hopefully I can kick on.

"This is a good place to be. Everybody here is very down to earth, they all work hard and it seems a very good family-orientated club.

"I've played a lot of games at a young age but to work with the likes of Alec Chamberlain and Manuel Almunia, I think it's a forward step to be able to get that experience from them. I think their help can take me onto the next level.

"Competition for places is always good, so I just want to work hard as much as I can and then go from there."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
