Tom James earns extended Watford deal

James was playing in the Midland Football Alliance last season

Watford have handed a six-month extension to defender Tom James.

The Hornets plucked James from the Midland Football Alliance in the summer when they signed him from Stratford Town, handing him a deal until January.

The 23-year-old left-back has done enough to earn himself a longer stay at Vicarage Road and the chance to impress boss Sean Dyche.

He featured in pre-season friendlies but has yet to make a senior appearance for the Championship side.
