The Hornets' FA Youth Cup tie against Fleetwood Town will now be played on Tuesday December 3, with a 7pm KO, due to the opposition's draw in the Leasing.com Trophy.
See below for the original story.
The Hornets' Head of Academy is hoping his Under-18s can go one step further in this season's FA Youth Cup, a competition in which they reached the semi-final stage last term.
Watford's scholars - who were knocked out by eventual winners Liverpool in 2018/19 - have been drawn away to Fleetwood Town in the third round of this season's tournament.
They will face the Cod Army at the Highbury Stadium and Barry Quin says the FA Youth Cup is the most important competition in a young player's schedule.
"It's a big competition at this level. It gets bandied around a lot that winning isn't important at this level but it is – it's very important, especially at the sharp end of Under-18s and Under-23s," he said.
"It's all about results, and results in this competition get you noticed. They put the players and the club in the window and you get to play opposition you wouldn't usually play against, like Liverpool last season. You can test where you are at. It gives the players a taste.
"It's an important competition for us and our run last season was terrific. The lads played really, really well and hopefully we'll be able to do at least the same again this season."
