Former Watford and Doncaster Rovers goalkeeper Gary Woods has signed a two-year deal with Leyton Orient.

The 23-year-old, who started life with Cambridge United before a switch to Manchester United, completed a deal following his release from Championship side Watford.

Woods was let go by the Red Devils in 2008, and subsequently linked up with Doncaster Rovers, where he helped the Yorkshire side to the League One title in 2013.

But rather than stay with the newly-promoted side, he opted for pastures new with Watford, however, he failed to make a single appearance in his one season at Vicarage Road.

He becomes the second goalkeeper to sign for the O’s this summer, following on from Adam Legzdnis after his release from another Championship club in the shape of Derby County.
