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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
