Hornets trialist 'won't jump into anything'

Queens Park`s part time left back, Barry Douglas has admitted he`s "not going to jump into anything" despite being on Watford`s radar after a reportedly 'successful` trial under Malky Mackay`s watchful eye.

The 21 year old defender has only been on the books at the Scottish Division 3 amateur side for 2 seasons after completing a scholarship in 'refrigeration` but won`t decide whether he wants to turn pro until after his holibobs

Hmm, we can only imagine there`s big money to be made in fridges at the moment!

Douglas, who has netted 11 times in 65 games - an impressive haul for a left back in any league - is highly rated and Watford are most likely having to scrap it out against the likes of Aberdeen, Partick Thistle, Dundee, St Mirren and Queen of the South.

But young Barry appears to be in no rush to resolve his future, telling the Daily Record "I`m talking to a few clubs but I`m not going to jump into anything as I have a few options both in Scotland and in England".

The nominated Irn Bru Young Player of the Year added "I rate England as a higher level than Scotland but I`ll go on holiday and have a think about what I should do…It`s great to have interest from the SPL and the Championship as it`s a good position to be in".

So, lets hope that he has a good time in the Canaries or wherever he heads for the sun and then makes the right decision to sign on at WD18 on his return.

I know we haven't got much money but why are we trying to sign a left-back from the Scottish Third Division.

Apparently on Norwich's radar as well this morning (another Scottish boss there as well) - looks a half decent if untested player. Will he push Lloydinho? I doubt it.

A left footed player who plays left back, wow, that would make a change..

If he's up to league football I can't see a deal for a year being too expensive. Will this be the year Jure Travner steps up to rival Lloydy though?!?!
