The Canaries won their first reserve game of the season after coming from behind to beat Ridgeons League Premier Division side Kirkley at Carrow Road last night.

Senior squad members Simon Lappin, Troy Archibald-Henville and Luke Chadwick were included in an otherwise young line-up.

City equalised early in the second half when Kris Renton headed in a Korey Smith cross.

The winner came in the 70th minute when substitute Josh Dawkin picked up a cross from Robert Eagle and fired home.

t Norwich City Res: Nelson, Smith, Lappin (Omergie), Adeyemi, Dumic, Kandi (Kelly), Chadwick (Dawkin), Lathrope, Renton, Akcelrod (Daley), Eagle. Sub (not used) Rudd
