Norwich City are to scrap evening kick-offs for reserve team games at Carrow Road as part of cost-cutting exercises.

All matches will now kick off at 2pm, with City saying the policy now brings them into line with most other clubs and “and has been made to significantly reduce the cost of hosting reserve team football.”

In what looks like being the final evening reserve game, the Canaries' second string beat West Ham 2-1 in a friendly at Carrow Road on Monday night, with 1,890 fans watching from the Jarrold Stand.

Cody McDonald opened the scoring for the Canaries in the opening minute, with Paul McVeigh doubling the home advantage after the break. Substitute Jack Werndly pounced on an error from keeper Michael Theoklitos to grab a late consolation for the Hammers.
