Young striker Tristan Abrahams is enjoying the talent surrounding him in the Norwich City Under-23 squad, after adding another goal to his tally.

The 18-year-old was signed from National League side Leyton Orient in a deal reportedly worth around £250,000 during the summer and has so far scored four goals in 10 games for Matt Gill’s development squad.

His fourth goal came in a dramatic 3-3 draw at Wolves in the Premier League Cup on Monday, setting up Todd Cantwell just before half-time to reduce the deficit to 3-1 before adding a fine finish in the 89th minute, ahead of Cantwell equalising in the fourth minute of added time.

After making his Orient debut in League Two in March, and going on to score two goals in nine games, it continues an excellent year for Abrahams.

“It was good to get another goal,” he said. “I should have had a few more goals this season but there’s a lot of the season to go. I’m always happy to help out the team with goals and assists.

“I’m really enjoying it. Gilly (Matt Gill) is a very understanding coach and he knows my weak points and what I need to work on. He also helps me work on my strengths.

The draw keeps the young Canaries in contention to qualify from the group stages of the PL Cup.

“It’s a good feeling to come back from behind but I think we’ve got to start games better,” the striker added, speaking to City’s website. “If we start better then we’ll start winning more games.

“The spirit in this team is unreal. Obviously there is a real disappointment sometimes because we know we shouldn’t be going behind from silly goals and our own mistakes. But we have a lot of big characters in the dressing room and we are very together.”
