Under-18s travel north to face Newcastle in the cup

6 December 2018

Norwich City's Under-18s take on Newcastle United at the Northumberland FA in the U18s Premier League Cup on Saturday (kick-off 11am).

City will be looking to bounce back after defeat away at Staplewood Training centre last Saturday against Southampton, with the Canaries losing 4-1.

Isak Thorvaldsson scored his third goal in two games, bagging a brace against Leicester City before scoring a first half equaliser last week, however the Saints went on to score three more goals and win comfortably.

Both Norwich City and Newcastle United sit bottom of their respective divisions, so both will be ready and prepared for the cup fixture.

The Magpies lost 3-2 against Middlesbrough last time out in the U18 Premier League, with Jack Young and Joe White finding the net.

Newcastle were also involved in an FA Youth Cup game on Wednesday night, losing 2-1 away against Bolton Wanderers.
