Date of birth
Experienced defender Keith Watson joined Pools on loan from St Johnstone in August, penning a deal which keeps him at The Vic until January 2018.
The versatile 27-year-old came through the ranks at Dundee United where he went on to make over 150 senior appearances during an eight-year stay at Tannadice.
He spent a season at St Mirren before signing for St Johnstone last summer but has struggled with injury so the move to Pools was perfect to help him try and get some more regular football under his belt.
A player with Europa League experience, Watson is comfortable playing at right back or in the centre of defence.
