Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson has paid tribute to Alec Chamberlain's "wonderful career" in football.
Sir Bobby took Alec on as a 17 year old youth team player at Ipswich in 1981, and though he released him a year later, he said Alec has been a credit to football.
"I'm very proud that I gave Alec his first chance, and releasing him was a very tough call, but we had two very good senior goalkeepers and opportunities for him would have been very limited.
"But I was delighted when Allan Hunter took him on at Colchester, and have been pleased that Alec's had a great career in the game, playing over 800 senior games is an outstanding achievement.
"I remember when I was manager of Newcastle, he had an outstanding game against us for Watford - we won 2-1 in the end, but Alec pulled off some terrific saves, and didn't deserve to be on the losing side that day.
"I'm very pleased for him that he's been awarded a Testimonial by Watford and I wish him every success this season.
"It's outstanding that he's still going strong at 41, and tells you what a great professional he must be to keep himself in good enough shape to still be competing at such a high level."
