Youth team secure excellent win over Southampton
NORWICH City's Under-18s followed up their FA Youth Cup victory in midweek with an impressive 2-0 triumph over Southampton on Saturday morning.
Neil Adams' side had travelled back directly from Preston on Wednesday night after their 6-1 win at Deepdale - their first game as defending champions in the competition.
There was no sign of any tiredness, however, as Lewis Byrne-Hewitt and Ray Grant struck in the second half at Colney Training Centre to notch another three points.
The result left the Canaries eighth in the 11-team table, but ten points clear of the bottom three.
City's next fixture is an away game against basement club Arsenal on Saturday December 21 (10.45am).
FULL-TIME: Norwich City 2-0 Southampton
GOALS: Norwich City: Ray Grant (55), Lewis Byrne-Hewitt (81).
NORWICH CITY: Killip; Norman (c), Burgess, Lokko, Wyatt; Hodd (Scales 75); Heath, Grant; Eaton-Collins (Byrne-Hewitt 21); Cole, Couzens (Efete 68). Subs not used: Fox, Oxborough (GK).
