University angered cooks lacking the required seniority (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

underage

Here is my best explanation:

'lacking the required seniority' is the definition.

'university angered cooks' is the subsidiary indication.

'university' becomes 'u'.

'cooks' indicates an anagram.

'angered' is an anagram of 'nderage'.

'u'+'nderage'='underage'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for underage that I've seen before include "Not yet eligible to vote - too young", "Too young", "Need a rug (anag.)", "Not old enough to exercise legal right", "Not legally old enough" and "Immature".)
