Craig Cathcart

Craig Cathcart is a Northern Ireland international defender who plays for Watford. Born in Derry on 6th February 1989, Cathcart was spotted by Manchester United scouts and joined their academy as a schoolboy. He was part of the side that reached the 2007 FA Youth Cup final, making his senior debut while on a six-month loan with Royal Antwerp later that year. Further loan spells in the Championship with Plymouth Argyle and Watford followed before a permanent £500,000 transfer to Premier League new boys Blackpool in August 2010. After four seasons and more than 100 appearances with the Seasiders, including a 2-1 defeat to West Ham United in the 2012 Championship play-off final, the commanding centre-half was released in July 2014 and returned to Watford on a permanent deal – winning promotion to the Premier league in 2014/15. Cathcart has over 30 caps for Northern Ireland, including playing every minute of his nation’s matches at UEFA Euro 2016.
