St Patrick's Athletic goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin has signed for English Championship side Watford on a one-year contract.

Gilmartin moves to Vicerage Road for a second time.

His first spell came to an end in 2012 when he moved to Plymouth after being released.

After departing the League 2 club, he joined the Saints in July 2013.

The 27-year-old played just 45 minutes of league football in the 13-month spell at Richmond Park with Brendan Clarke dominating the selection between the posts for Liam Buckley's side.
