A goal in stoppage time sank the young Canaries in their final FA Premier Academy Under-18 League fixture of the season at Colney.
City took the lead through schoolboy Manny Richardson after 55 minutes - his first goal at under-18 level - only for the Eagles to draw level with 15 minutes left through substitute Jack Randall. With less than 60 seconds left, City were denied a penalty when Richardson saw a shot blocked on the line and, with the City bench still appealing, Palace broke and James Dayton had the simplest of tasks.
