Adam Idah delighted with maiden Carrow Road treble

13 December 2017

Norwich City Under-18s' striker Adam Idah praised the way his side rose to the occasion during Tuesday night's FA Youth Cup victory over Barnsley at Carrow Road.

David Wright's young Canaries found themselves trailing 1-0 at the break, but turned things around emphatically by striking four times in 12 minutes to book their place in the fourth round.

Idah himself netted three of those goals, and after the match told reporters: "It was an excellent win after a tough first half.

"Everyone performed well and we got a great result. We encouraged each other to come out in the second half and prove a point, because Barnsley were on top.

"It's such a big tournament in the country. When we knew we were playing at home, everyone was really up for the game.

"We were a bit nervous because it was a decent crowd but we got over that and started to perform.

"With the first team manager watching, it's exciting for all of us."

Reflecting on his quick-fire treble, the Republic of Ireland youth international added: "I'm really happy with it.

"It's my first hat-trick for the club on my first appearance at Carrow Road. I'm delighted about that.

"I was playing locally back in Ireland and one of the scouts came to watch me. I think I scored a hat-trick in that game, came over here on trial and scored a hat-trick against Peterborough.

"I scored a hat-trick recently against Azerbaijan too so hopefully I can keep going! Once I score one, I get more confident."
