Stopper Scott signs three year deal at Portman Road

Town have today completed the signing of 'keeper Scott Loach from Watford, for an undisclosed fee.

Blues agreed a fee with the Hornets earlier this week, allowing Scott to travel to Suffolk for talks and a medical, before signing a three-year deal at Portman Road with the option of an additional year.

It marks a dramatic turnaround for the 24-year-old, who had previously turned out for the Town Academy before his family moved away from the area.

The Nottingham-born stopper then went on to have spells in the Academies of Nottingham Forest and Chesterfield, before signing as an apprentice at Lincoln, prior to his move to Watford in 2006.

Scott went on to clock up more than 150 appearances during his time at Vicarage Road, as well earning 14 England U21 caps.

The boyhood Town fan becomes Paul Jewell's third summer signing, following the arrivals of Elliott Hewitt and Luke Chambers.

Speaking to our official matchday programme back in December, Scott said: "I've always been an Ipswich supporter and it is here where my goalkeeping education started, so I will always be thankful to the Club for that."

You can hear more from Scott later on his move to Portman Road, when he speaks exclusively to the Club website.
