Norwich City U-18 1, Crystal Palace U-18 2

A goal in stoppage time sank the young Canaries in their final FA Premier Academy Under-18 League fixture of the season at Colney.

City took the lead through schoolboy Manny Richardson after 55 minutes - his first goal at under-18 level - only for the Eagles to draw level with 15 minutes left through substitute Jack Randall. With less than 60 seconds left, City were denied a penalty when Richardson saw a shot blocked on the line and, with the City bench still appealing, Palace broke and James Dayton had the simplest of tasks.

t Norwich City Under-18: Rudd (Steer, 85 min), Cooper, Yong, Lathrope, Ferrell (Miller, 56 min), Danny Kelly, Adeyemi, Smith, Daley, Richardson, Davey. Subs (not used) Holmes, Stephens, Dawkin.
