On the 5th of February, Norwich City U18's travelled to Lindum in the last 16 of the plate competition where both teams were competitive throughout, Lindum with the edge in the first 10 minutes, however Norwich had some good opportunities on the break, Ross Pitcher with a lovely chip which just cleared the bar. As the play opened up Norwich were capitalising on some wide weaknesses from Lindum with some good balls into the D, Norwich finally got the breakthrough as we came to half time with the finish from Alfie on the p-spot. As the second half commenced Norwich doubled their lead with a great deflection from Will Kidner. As we approached the last 20 minutes Lindum got one goal back from a lovely deflection past Jake's left shoulder, however, Norwich got a third from a pin point slap into the D from Fred Anthony which left Alfie with a tap in. Norwich had good structure throughout the game and kept it until the final whistle overall a good team performance, also we wish Ali recovers soon from his blow to the face.
Final Score 3-1
We all wish Ali Husband a speedy recovery after taking the ball in the mouth during the game and having to whizz off to A&E in Lincoln.
Finally, thanks to Pies and Frosty and all the parents for driving.

U18B - City of Peterborough U18B (EH U18 C2) - L 1-3 - Close encounter in first round of EH U18 boys Cup
COLTS XI - 06/11/2016 VS CITY OF PETERBOROUGH U18B (H) |
TEAM: Colts XI
FIXTURE: Colts XI VS 06/11/2016
HEADLINE: Close encounter in first round of EH U18 boys Cup
LEAGUE: EH U18B CUP
RESULT: NORWICH CITY
REPORT: NORWICH CITY U18B 1, CITY OF PETERBOROUGH U18B 3
Last year saw the two City sides compete in the first round of the EH U18 boys cup, this season it was to be the same opening game of the competition and with City of Peterborough having gone all the way to the semi-finals last season it was clear that they were considering themselves as the favourites, especially with the result being very much one sided last season.
This season the game was very unlike the previous encounter, both teams competing well and the game seeing chances for both teams throughout the game. It was however the visitors, City of Peteborough, who took the lead following a very long spell of deadlock hockey and some great midfield battles taking place, but the equaliser that followed from Norwich City was a remarkable team move, starting with their left half feeding the ball down the left, the ball moving around the top of the 23 and then finding George Brine moving in from the right to slot the ball past the advancing goalkeeper. With two late goals and the visitors running down the clock with even a two goal advantage it was clear that this was a tight game.
Norwich City will take many positives out of a game against what was a very good travelling City of Peterborough team. The next stage is the EH Plate, hoping that performances like this will give the U18 boys a chance of a good run in the Plate competition instead.
