6 January 2017

Agust Hlynsson makes his debut as City progress to the fifth round

CITY's Under-18s progressed to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup after braces from Benny Ashley-Seal and Louis McIntosh helped them beat Burnley 4-0 at Turf Moor.

The Canaries started the game on the front foot when Glenn Middleton's cross fell to debutant Agust Hlynsson who fired over the bar from close range six minutes in.

City took the lead after 39 minutes when the hosts gave away a penalty that was converted by frontman Ashley-Seal.

Norwich went into the break full of confidence after being on top for most of the first half.

Ashley-Seal netted again four minutes into the second half to double his side's lead when he got on the end of a City corner and powered the ball past Connor King.

New boy Agust Hlynsson's game ended after 65 minutes when he was replaced by Alfie Payne.

The Canaries went 3-0 up when Louis McIntosh played a one-two with Ashley-Seal before hitting home in the 67th minute.

McIntosh almost netted again 11 minutes later when he worked his way into the box before rattling the post. The midfielder completed his brace moments from the final whistle after charging into the Clarets' box and smashing the ball home.
