ANOTHER Vicarage Road youngster, goalkeeper Jack Bonham, has committed his future to the club.

Jack started his two-year scholarship with the Hornets' Academy at the end of this summer.

The goalkeeper this week celebrated his 17th birthday, which meant he could begin his professional deal with the club which runs until 2013.

Bonham is a towering goalkeeper who has appeared for the Under-18 side so far this campaign. He has also enjoyed international youth honours with the Republic of Ireland.

He will continue his education and other regular Academy duties alongside the club's first and second-year scholars.

Bonham follows in the footsteps of fellow keeper Jonathan Bond and attack-minded Sean Murray, who have also signed professional deals recently.

The goalkeeper is another youngster to emerge from The Harefield Academy - the educational establishment where the next generations of Golden Boys combine their football and education.

Bonham was under the tutelage of Nick Cox and Brad Hughes from the Hornets' Academy at Harefield.

Watford boss Malky Mackay said: "We're delighted to have him on board; he's a good prospect and we see potential there.

"Jack has now committed himself to the Football Club and, under Alec Chamberlain's mentoring, we hope to see him progress and go from strength to strength."
