EXPERIENCED midfielder Kevin Watson has put pen to paper on a new, improved deal, therefore following in the footsteps of his Colchester United team-mate John White.

Watson, 33, signed a new contract at Layer Road yesterday, even though he still had time left on his existing deal. Likewise, full-back White signed a new improved and extended contract on Wednesday.

Ex-Reading midfielder Watson has been a key man for the U's since his move from the Madejski Stadium three years ago. He has only missed nine league games over those last three seasons.
