Full-back: The crowd makes a difference

LOUIS Ramsay is excited about the prospect of facing his former team Tottenham Hotspur in front of a bumper home crowd on Thursday (7.45pm).

City's Under-21s head into the league contest full of confidence after last Wednesday's victory over Villarreal in the International Cup, a win that came courtesy of a fine strike from the ex-Spurs full-back.

Entry is once again FREE for all supporters this week, and Ramsay is hoping to get one over his previous employers at Carrow Road.

"With anyone against their old club, they always want to prove something. If I could grab another goal, that would be brilliant!" he told

"It's always good to play against them. I did four times last year for the Under-18s and the Under-21s, and I performed well in all of the games.

"I spent two-and-a-half years there and that was where I really pushed on. I got my confidence and I developed both as physically and technically as a player."

Ramsay started at left-back against Villarreal in a youthful Canaries team that rose to the occasion to triumph 1-0 in front of 3,508 supporters.

He says the backing of a vocal home crowd always makes a difference, adding: "I think that was the best we've played this season. As you could see, all the fans really appreciated it.

"It's brilliant playing in front of the supporters. Every time we have a game coming up at Carrow Road, we know there's going to be a big crowd.

"It adds to your game - you feel confident that you can do things, and then you show that on the pitch.

"It's massive and I've been thinking about it all week, and I'm sure the other lads have too. Last year, there was over 10,000 people there and it was a great win over Tottenham and we're hoping to do the same."

The second-year scholar was as surprised as anyone with his winning strike last week, commenting: "I don't score much! It was good to get a goal, especially in the circumstances. It was 0-0 and we needed a win.

"If I was at right-back, I wouldn't cut in like that because I'm not left-footed. It opened up for me, I saw the opportunity and I put it in the back of the net.

"My mum, dad, sister and a couple of my friends were all there, so as soon as I scored I ran over to them to show my appreciation."
