Southampton’s men’s first-team have added to their pre-season schedule with a friendly against Watford at Wealdstone’s Grosvenor Vale on Saturday 23rd July 3pm BST.

Taking place two weeks before the start of the 2022/23 Premier League season, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side will take on the Hornets three days after returning from their week-long training camp in Austria.

Facing SK Austria Klagenfurt during their time in Europe on Monday 18th July, Saints will test themselves against Watford before hosting Champions League semi-finalists Villarreal on Saturday 30th July at St Mary's.

Having suffered relegation from the Premier League in 2021/22, Watford will be looking to bounce back immediately, with Rob Edwards – who won promotion from League Two with Forest Green Rovers last season - now at the helm after the departure of Roy Hodgson.

Full ticketing information for fans wishing to attend the game, as well as any broadcast details, will be announced in due course.
