Watford’s new signing Chris Iwelumo is ready to bring his promotion pushing power to the front of the Hornet’s campaign next year.

The Scottish striker has led the attack of four successful promotion campaigns including Wolves and Colchester United.

Iwelumo admitted he has "goose bumps" over the latest opportunity in the Npower Championship, and is ready to "keep on achieving".

The latest arrival to Vicarage Road starts a two-year deal on Tuesday July 19, and the 32-year-old is still raring to go.

"It's a great opportunity for me to come and achieve something - I think there's real ambition here and I'm just glad to be part of it," he said. "I'm excited and looking forward to it - I think there will be good times ahead.


 

"I have been speaking to the gaffer and he's so confident that you can feel the little goose bumps going. He wants to achieve something and I'm excited to be part of that."

Iwelumo, whose six foot three inch presence will be sure to make an impact to the Hornet's attack, reflected on a career that had taken in some of the Championship's most successful teams.

"I've been very lucky in that I've had four promotions and I've played in the [Barclays] Premier League, I want to keep on achieving things.

"I want to keep on playing and scoring goals - but of course I've had some low points in my career. I think everyone brings back my Scotland debut, but if anything it makes you stronger."

An open goal miss marred the striker's international debut, but Iwelumo's has since moved on.

"It's a short career and you have to do as much in the game as you possibly can do, so I have no regrets at the end of it," he continued. "With the way I'm going, I'm not going to have any regrets."
