A roll-call of talented youngsters sign as scholars at the Norwich City Academy.

NORWICH City chief executive David McNally and first-team coach Neil Adams have helped induct nine new first-year scholars to the club's Academy.

In demonstrating the attitude and attributes to achieve the very highest professional standards, all nine youngsters will now attend City's Academy on a full-time basis and join the Canaries' Under-18 squad alongside their second-year teammates.

The squad will compete in the Category 1 Development League and the FA Youth Cup, which was memorably won by City's U18 team in 2012-13 after victory in the final against Chelsea.
