Hornets youngster Alex Jakubiak has signed a youth loan at League Two side Oxford United until January 4.

The striker has made one first-team appearance for Watford which came on the final day of last season. The Golden Boys were beaten 4-1 at home by Huddersfield Town and the 17-year-old featured for 58 minutes. 

It will be Jakubiak's second loan spell away from Vicarage Road. He spent just over two months at Conference side Braintee Town last season and made 11 appearances for the club, scoring once.

Good Luck son. I'm from Oxford even though I'm a Hornets fan but I have a few mates that watch them all over the place and they say they desperately need a striker. Lets hope they give him a run in the side.

Good move. Hopefully a few more teenagers will join him before September.

As happy as I am to have several talented youngsters on our books, I can't see Mensah, Smith, Johnson, Byers etc. getting a look in. Might as well go out on loan and gain experience. Even if they aren't in our long-term plans, and it's more or less inevitable that not all of them will ever cut it for us, getting their faces known in the lower leagues could raise their price-tag.

I am sure he will be in safe hands at Mr Cashton's 'I have based my career on building clubs' Oxford Utd...as long as he doesn't hoof any chances over the ring fence.

How did you know Ashton was C.E.O. at Oxford?!
(I've confirmed it by looking up Wikipedia. )
I pity Oxford Utd - let's hope they've got some good lawyers.
I've also noticed that Cashton can only be contacted via somebody else, per the club website, - surprise, surprise!
