Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach has signed a new contract this week which will tie him to the Club until 2013.
The England Under-21 international has committed his future to Vicarage Road following another fine season with the Hornets.
Since making his debut in August 2008 the Nottingham-born goalkeeper has gone from strength-to-strength.
He managed to establish himself in the first-team last season and has featured regularly between the sticks this campaign.
His outstanding performances attracted the attentions of Stuart Pearce and Loach took part in the UEFA European U21 Championship for England last summer.
The rookie ‘keeper gained experience away from Vicarage Road during loan spells with the Stafford Rangers, Morecambe and Bradford City.
