Canaries suffer a morning of misery

David Williams could offer no excuses as Norwich City's Academy Under-18 side were well beaten at Leicester this morning.

FA Premier Academy Under-18 League: Leicester City 4, Norwich City 0

David Williams could offer no excuses as Norwich City's Academy Under-18 side were well beaten at Leicester this morning.

A goal up before the break, the Foxes scored a further three after the interval and, while there was some good to come out of the match in the performance of schoolboy Ross Kelly, who joins the Canaries at the start of next season, there was little cheer for the Canaries, who face a trip to league leaders Southampton next Saturday.

Norwich might have opened the scoring after 15 minutes when Seb Muddel and Chris Martin combined well, only for the Leicester 'keeper to produce a good save to deny Muddel.

Shortly afterwards, the home side took the lead after a mix-up in the Canaries' defence.

Leicester extended their lead not long after the break before Williams was forced into making a change when Matthew Halliday, who took a knock in the first half, had to be substituted, Alvin Quaye making his first appearance since breaking his leg against his old club, West Ham, back in October.
