Matt Gill’s squad played the Southern Premier Division side at The Walks and won thanks to two goals from Tony Andreu and one apiece for Michee Efete and Todd Cantwell, after Leon Mettam had fired the hosts ahead early on.

The Linnets are managed by Canaries legend Ian Culverhouse, who took over towards the end of last season and has since brought in a raft of new players, including Norwich academy product Ryan Jarvis.

City’s under-23s are preparing for Premier League Two, with the Championship club set to rely more on its academy system in the coming season after falling away from the riches of the Premier League.

The young Canaries take part in the club’s pre-season tour of Germany next week, when they will face SC Rot-Weiß Oberhausen on Wednesday (12.30pm) and Eintracht Braunschweig U23s on Friday (12pm).
