REPORT: U18s 2-1 SOUTHAMPTON

14 February 2015

Canaries youngsters continue good run of form

NORWICH City Under-18s made it successive wins with an impressive 2-1 victory over a strong Southampton side at Colney Training Centre on Saturday.

The visitors had taken an early lead through Olufela Olomola with five minutes played, but a Todd Cantwell penalty seven minutes before the break following a foul on George Couzens took them into half-time level.

After digging deep during the second period to keep their opponents at bay despite Josh Sims' best efforts, City then clinched all three points with eight minutes remaining when substitute Devonte Aransibia struck with a tidy finish.

The Canaries' success was made all the more notable given Saints' squad included three players who represented their Under-21s team during the recent Premier League Cup win over Norwich at St Mary's.

City have now won successive matches in the Barclays Under-18s Premier League, having beaten Leicester City by the same scoreline two weeks ago.

Jerry Gill's side are ending the season strongly with seven points from their last four games as they lay the foundations for the 2015-2016 campaign, and face a trip to West Ham United next weekend.

FULL-TIME: Norwich City 2-1 Southampton

NORWICH CITY: Beauchamp (GK); Ramsay, Boateng, Pollock, Ellesley, Syme, Black, Sambu (Aransibia, 68), Couzens, Cantwell (c), McIntosh (Kamal, 90).
