Norwich City Under-18s will continue their 2019-20 FA Youth Cup campaign in the fourth-round fixture against Manchester United on Tuesday, January 21 (7pm kick-off) at Carrow Road.
The Canaries booked their place in the fourth-round after beating Newcastle United 3-2 in the third-round earlier in December. All three of City’s goals, including a long-range screamer, came from Josh Martin as the young midfielder became the evening’s hattrick hero to progress the side into the fourth-round.

Man United, on the other hand, overcame Lincoln City 2-0 to earn their progression in the tournament. Both of United’s goals came from new Ajax signing Dillon Hoogewerf after impressive team moves set him up perfectly. The youngster’s brace proved enough to set United up to face the Canaries.
The winner of this fixture progresses onto the last 16 of the competition.
The young Canaries will be aiming high in this competition and looking to go further than last year’s tournament, in which they finished their campaign in the fourth round. You can read all about the Canaries’ last seven years in the tournament here.
