The Future's Yellow: Norwich City's Under 18 team lifted the FA Youth Cup last season
Norwich City's FA Youth Cup triumph last season should give renewed hope for the future, and it is certainly a night that will live long in the memory.
The Canaries Under 18's defied the odds by taking on, and defeating, the best that their fellow youth teams from around the country had to offer to lift the cup.
What's more, the fact that more than 20,000 fans turned up for the home leg at Carrow Road against Chelsea, and a staggering 3,000 traveled down to West London for the return fixture, shows just how united the club are from top to bottom.
The young Canaries look like a team that are bustling with talent, with the likes of the Murphy twins, Cameron McGeehan and Harry Toffolo (to name just a few) looking more than comfortable on the big stage.
It may be a tough ask for such players to break into the first team next season, but they appear to be ready to at least make the step up to senior football on loan at another club, and if they impress, opportunities in Chris Hughton's squad may not be a million miles away.
At last, the academy system at Norwich finally appears to be bearing fruit, after several dry years on the production line previously.
With the club also securing Category One Academy status, the club has a brilliant platform to produce more young talent in the coming seasons and to ensure that Norwich City are in very safe hands for years to come.
