The game on July 31 will bring back memories of the last clash between the two sides in July 2006 when Watford were 3-2 winners on Paul Lambert's managerial debut in Buckinghamshire.

It will also provide a chance for Blues duo Marvin McCoy and Joel Grant to come up against the club where they began their careers.

"I'm delighted that we've been able to arrange a game with a side of Watford's quality," Wycombe boss Waddock told the club's official website. "It's a good fixture in our pre-season programme and it will test the players' fitness levels against a Championship team."

Meanwhile, Waddock's men will travel to Staines Town for the second summer running on July 21.

The Blues cruised to a 5-0 success at Wheatsheaf Park last year thanks to goals from Matt McClure (2), Stuart Beavon, Jesse Kewley-Graham

and Jordon Ibe, who has since signed for Liverpool.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
