Pre-season is up and running, with Norwich City fans getting the first opportunity to watch their team live for seven months.

Ahead of Covid-19 restrictions ending on Monday a capacity of 1,600 spectators was allowed at The Walks as the Canaries kicked off pre-season with a 3-1 win over King's Lynn Town.

Other than four matches during the first half of last season when a maximum of 2,000 supporters were allowed inside Carrow Road, Daniel Farke's team have played the majority of the last 18 months behind closed doors.

Those lucky enough to get a ticket saw Kieran Dowell score a brace in the first half and Adam Idah make sure of the win with a late strike, set up by Todd Cantwell.

New signings Milot Rashica, Billy Gilmour and Angus Gunn were all in the starting line-up, with academy players including Jonathan Tomkinson and Rob Nizet involved during the second half.

On a warm and sunny evening in West Norfolk, the friendly proved a good workout for both teams and gave supporters hope of a return to football normality being just around the corner.
