Youngsters join Canaries' professional ranks

FIVE players have signed two-year deals with a one-year option, their first professional contracts at Norwich City, with four of those graduating from the Club's Under-18s side.

Joe Crowe, Jamal Lewis, Aston Oxborough and Louis Ramsay all represented Graeme Murty's youngsters last season, while Jake Hallett arrives after leaving Southampton.

They will be joined in the Development Squad by Todd Cantwell, who signed pro terms towards the end of last season, and January addition Ben Godfrey.

Northern Ireland youth international Joe Crowe moved into City's Academy in 2014, captaining the FA Youth Cup side during their impressive run in the tournament last term.

Jamal Lewis was a regular for the Under-18s last season, with the versatile winger breaking into the Canaries' Development Squad towards the end of the campaign.

Goalkeeper Aston Oxborough is a product of the Academy Schools system, and has represented England at various youth levels.

Defender Louis Ramsay was a fixture in the 2015-16 Under-21s side, notably collecting two separate 'Aviva Goal of the Month' Awards - including for a stunning volley against Middlesbrough in the FA Youth Cup.

Finally, Birmingham-born goalkeeper Jake Hallett moves to City after spending the best part of a decade with Southampton.

Meanwhile, the following players have joined the Under-18s setup as first-year scholars ahead of the 2016-17 season:

Max Aarons
Bradley Catton
Alan Fleming
Fergal Hale-Brown
Bilal Kamal
Glenn Middleton
