Watts was again a vital member of the Leyton Orient forward line in 2000-01, scoring a total of 11 valuable goals including one in the Worthington Cup tie against Newcastle United and the first goal in the Play-Off semi-final against Hull City. However he was later sent off in the latter game and missed the final through suspension. Watts originally entered the professional game as the winner of the Sun newspaper's 'Search for a Striker' competition in 1998 and is a big powerful front man.

Watts went on the Os transfer list at the end of the 2001-02 season, finally joining Shrewsbury Town in March 2003 with a contract to June 2004.
