ON THE PITCH
Norwich City began the month with a home draw against Rotherham United, as Cameron Jerome cancelled out Paul Green's earlier opener to keep his side top of the league.

The Canaries' next trip took them to the capital, where they went down 1-0 to Fulham, with Sean Kavanagh scoring the only goal midway through the first half.

Neil Adams' men had the chance to equalise almost immediately after the interval, only for Lewis Grabban to strike the bar with a penalty ahead of Josh Murphy also hitting the woodwork.

Two draws followed; the first at home to Leeds United before a goalkeeping clinic from Sheffield Wednesday's Kieren Westwood restricted City to a point at Hillsborough.

Having gone five games without victory, Norwich rounded off October in fine fashion with a polished display against Bolton Wanderers at Carrow Road which brought a 2-1 home win.


OFF THE PITCH
At the start of October, Norwich City announced the opening of the 1902 Matchday Bottle Bar for supporters at Carrow Road.

The Canaries then set a new Barclays Under-21s Premier League record crowd on Tuesday, October 14 when 10,405 fans watched the Academy side defeat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Carrow Road.

One player to feature in that game was Harry Toffolo, who completed a youth loan move to Sky Bet League One side Swindon Town shortly afterwards.

Toffolo followed Sebastien Bassong in temporarily moving elsewhere, with the City centre-back having joined Watford on a 93-day loan deal earlier in the month. 

Finally, Canaries Official launched an all-new fashion range for ladies entitled "Inspired by Laura Ruddy" - wife of Norwich goalkeeper, John Ruddy.



PLAYER OF THE MONTH
Having won 'Anglian Home Improvements Player of the Month' in September, Cameron Jerome clinched a second successive award in October.

The striker notched three goals in five appearances, including an important brace against Bolton Wanderers which secured a 2-1 victory.


QUOTE OF THE MONTH
"The one thing you know with the supporters here is if you give them an opportunity to come and get behind the Club in any shape of form, they will do that." - Academy manager Gregg Broughton on Norwich City setting a new Barclays Under-21s Premier League record crowd against Tottenham Hotspur.


GOAL OF THE MONTH
Harley Black won 'Aviva Goal of the Month' for October, with the Norwich City Academy player scoring a superb free-kick against Southampton Under-18s to rescue a dramatic point for his side.

The Canaries were trailing 1-0 with just four minutes left, only for the youngster to find the net with a whipped effort into the top-corner.
