Date of birth
We always enjoy having one of our own in the first-team squad at Norwich City, and Canaries fan Aston Oxborough is one of many Academy graduates to progress under Daniel Farke.
With the seniority of Tim Krul and Michael McGovern around him, Gorleston-born Oxborough is in the perfect position to learn and develop.
2007 - 2010: Oxborough begins his youth career as a defender for local team Hemsby Hornets. He’s scouted by Norwich in 2008 but continues to play for the Hornets until 2010.
2010 - 2018: Oxborough begins his youth career at Norwich City aged 12 and becomes a goalkeeper due to his height. Just three years after signing, at the age of 15, Oxborough makes his Under-18s debut against Manchester City U18s.
Two years later in 2015, he’s called up to England’s Under-16s for the first time, making his international debut in a 4-1 win over Denmark U16s. He goes on to play frequently for the Canaries’ Under-23s team in the Premier League 2.
2018 - Present: Oxborough’s progression through the Norwich City Academy earns him a place in the first-team squad for 2018-19’s pre-season tour of Germany. Back on home soil, he replaces Remi Matthews in the 66th minute of a friendly against King’s Lynn Town for his first senior appearance.
Ahead of the 2019-20 season, Oxborough is sent on loan to National League South club Wealdstone, and it’s a move that turns out well for all parties. The ‘keeper quickly becomes a fan favourite, Wealdstone supporters voting him their Player of the Month for September, before the club go on to win the National League South at the end of the season.
