Manchester United meet the Hornets at Vicarage Road on Saturday and the 30-year-old winger is excited to head back to the place where it all started.
"I'm really looking forward to going back. It's the club where I started and learnt my trade and, hopefully, it'll be a nice reception... a better one than I get at Aston Villa anyway!" he told the club's official website.
"There will be quite a lot of my family going to the game, so it'll be nice to go back. I started at Watford when I was 10 and left at 21, so I was there for a long time.
"It set me up and helped me get to where I am today and I thank everyone who was there at the time who I worked with."
Young came through Watford's youth academy before helping the Hertfordshire club gain promotion to the Premier League in 2006 prior to his move to Villa.
