Oxford United’s under 18s look to continue their unbeaten start to the season in the EFL Youth Alliance South West when they welcome Exeter City to the Oxford Sports Park on Saturday morning.
The game has been moved back to an 11.30am kick off to allow Exeter a little extra travel time for the long journey and the U’s welcome back right-back Ben Watt who has finished his successful work experience at Stratford Town.
The former Tottenham youngster returns to the squad although goalkeeper Eddie Brearey is still ruled out through injury; first year scholar Fraser Barnsley continues to impress in his absence. Striker Adam Smith is unavailable due to his loan at Weston-super-Mare.
The Under 17s also play Exeter on Saturday morning while the Under 15s play QPR and the younger age groups play matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur.
The U’s will find out who they face in the FA Youth Cup today when the draw is made at 3pm today.
