Although the game at the Lotus Training Centre in Colney was behind closed doors - with fans urged not to attend due to coronavirus restrictions - our regular Canaries photographer, Paul Chesterton of Focus Images, was able to observe from a distance.

City legend Russell Martin brought his League One side to his former training ground as both teams stepped up preparations for the 2020-21 campaign.

Norwich, fresh from Premier League relegation, moved through the gears to lead 2-0 at the break thanks to a brace from youngster Josh Martin - with summer signings Danel Sinani and Przemyslaw Placheta setting up the goals.

As a host of substitutions began, Marco Stiepermann added a third early in the second half, Adam Idah made up for missing a penalty as he made it 4-0. Onel Hernandez continued the rout with a fifth and Emi Buendia completed a good afternoon’s work.

The Canaries fly out to Germany this weekend for a training champ in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, when they will face third tier sides SC Verl and Dynamo Dresden on Monday and Wednesday respectively, then Darmstadt on the Saturday before flying home.

The new season soon follows, with a trip to Luton on Saturday, September 5 in the League Cup first round and to Huddersfield on Saturday, September 12 in the Championship.
