Loach not content to be Watford No 2

Loach not content to be Watford No 2

Young Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach has sent a warning shot across the palms of experienced stoppers Richard Lee and Mart Poom by insisting he won`t settle for reserve team football next season.

He may have only racked up 22 league games but Loach has laid down the gauntlet to the Hornets goalkeeping union stating if he isn`t Aidy Boothroyd`s No 1 then he`d rather be out on loan in the lower leagues!

Loach, who at 19 only made his debut at any league level in December, told the Bradford Telegraph and Angus "..if I`m only going back [to Watford] to play for the reserves again, I would bite their hands off to come back to Bradford".

Loach added "It's brilliant to train with the lads at Watford and I've been on the bench a couple of times with them but there's nothing better than playing at a proper level, no matter whether it`s Championship or League Two - you just want to be out there and involved week in, week out."

With Premier League clubs Liverpool, Newcastle, Man City and Tottenham already sniffing around the future looks rosy for the former Lincoln trainee stopper - though his immediate future looks a bit more up in the air.

Loach added "I don`t know what`s going to happen next season - it all really depends on Watford and what they are thinking. If I am at Watford, then hopefully I will be pushing for a first team place."

Mssrs Poom and Lee…you have been warned.

From what I've heard, Braford were very impressed by him. If Poom does go [as predicted] then he'd be worth a first-team chance surely?

If we are not going to get anyone better, Scott can't be any worse than Lee or Poom. Can he??? Maybe it would be worth giving him a chance.
