The East Anglian Derby may not be on Norwich City’s Championship fixture list this season - but the Canaries Under-23s will face Ipswich Town’s youngsters in a friendly on Friday.

David Wright’s City side will face Gerard Nash’s Tractor Boys as they continue their preparations for the new season - kick off is at 5pm.

The fixture will take place behind closed doors - with spectators not permitted at the venue.

There may be no senior derby this season, but bragging rights are still at stake for the respective clubs.

City’s youngsters also discovered their EFL Trophy schedule - with the Canaries travelling to face Plymouth Argyle next Tuesday. Cheltenham Town and Newport County make up the group, with City hoping to progress to the latter stages of the competition.
