Simon Power: I'm excited by Carrow Road chance

22 January 2018

Norwich City Under-23s winger is eager for his first taste of Carrow Road when Matt Gill's youngsters host Bournemouth in the Premier League Cup on Monday (7pm).

The Republic of Ireland youth international recently penned permanent terms with the Canaries, having impressed during a trial period towards the end of 2017.

He made his bow for the Development Squad as a substitute in last weekend's 4-3 win over Newcastle United, and is already hungry for more involvement.

"It was a dramatic game and in the end we were able to get the win," Power told canaries.co.uk.

"I got to come on in the second half and think I made a difference. It was an enjoyable experience.

"I've never really played in a stadium as big as Carrow Road, so I'm looking forward to it. It would be a dream come true if I was able to play.

"Since a very young age I dreamed of playing over in England, in stadiums like that. It would mean a lot to me."

Reflecting on how his early days in Norfolk have gone, the 19-year-old added: "I'm really enjoying it, having been here a couple of weeks now.

"I've settled in well and all the lads have been good to me, which really helps. The club is outstanding and everything is a really high standard.

"Norwich as a place is quite similar to where I live back in Ireland. It was definitely a really good choice for me.

"I grew up watching Wes Hoolahan play for Ireland, so he's a bit of a hero to me. I look up to him, so it's great to see him about the place all the time."

Entry for the fixture is FREE to all supporters.
