New deals for Blues coaching duo

The duo have put pen to paper in the aftermath of Blues manager

Alex McLeish signing a new deal 10 days ago. The Watsons have

played an integral part in City gaining promotion from the

Championship and establishing themselves in the Premier League.

England number one Joe Hart has constantly praised Dave Watson for

the part he played in improving him as a keeper during his season

long loan at St Andrew’s from Manchester City. Andy Watson said:

“First and foremost, everything revolves around Alex and once the

club came to his agreement on his contract, then we could move

forward together. “Myself and Dave were delighted the owners looked

at our contracts. “I think that was a recognition of the work we

are all trying to do here and what we have done as a group over the

past couple of years. “We came back up from the Championship and

are trying to get established as a Premier League side, as

difficult as that is, and will continue to work hard to achieve

that.”
