Watford have announced Lloyd Doyley has signed a new one-year contract with the Hornets.

As reported by the Watford Observer last week, the defender has put pen to paper on a new deal which keeps him at the club until the end of the 2014/2015 campaign.

Doyley joined the Golden Boys as a nine-year-old and made his professional debut 12-and-a-half years ago under the reign of Gianluca Vialli.

The 31-year-old made his 432nd outing for Watford against Barnsley which moved him joint sixth in the club's all-time appearance list with Arthur Woodward.

He is 71 appearances below record holder Luther Blissett and now only Blissett, Nigel Gibbs, Gary Porter, Duncan Welbourne and Tommy Barnett have appeared for the Hornets more times than Doyley.

The defender has found himself out of the side under several managers but has always won his place back.

Doyley has featured in 23 of Watford's 43 games this season but hasn’t played in the last two matches.

He loves to wear the shirt and I wish more England players were similar. Loyalty and humility are such rare commodities in the work place managers it's no wonder there is little stability in today's crazy world.

Too much back stabbing and egotistical behaviour.

I think he should be played more, especially in games we do not expect to win as he is always difficult to keep out of the play at the back.
