Midfielder Damon Lathrope was rewarded with a first professional contract by former City boss Glenn Roeder in January 2008. Always recognised as the playmaker for the Academy at youth team level, Damon was voted Friends of Norwich City Youth's player of the season in 2007-08.

Even during his time as an Academy scholar he trained regularly with the first team and has been involved in a number of pre-season matches - often catching the eye with a number of neat touches and his ability to pick a pass. He was also on the scoresheet in a friendly away to King's Lynn in July 2007.

Without doubt, Damon will certainly benefit from having regular reserve team fixtures in which to show his talents in the coming weeks and months ahead.
