Norwich City scholars Reiss Awuah, Cameron King and Cameron Norman have all been awarded two-year professional contracts after impressing in the club’s academy.

The trio will link up with Mark Robson’s development squad next season after excelling at scholarship level. Current development squad duo Remi Matthews and Adel Gafaiti have also signed fresh two-year deals with the club after being part of this season’s squad who secured a top half finish and qualification for the elite tier next season. Gafaiti had a spell on loan at League One Oldham recently.

The club have also released nine youngsters, among them six members of the successful FA Youth Cup winning squad under Neil Adams 12 months ago.

• The following players have not been offered terms and will be released when their contracts expire this summer

UNDER-21s

Harry Barker, Ewan McNeil, Rod Young

UNDER-18s

Rhys Browne, Harrison Heath, Harvey Hodd, Kevin Lokko, Henry Randall, Ben Wyatt

  • Very surprising, especially as the clubs without a manager currently. Im assuming the club took Ricky Martin & Neil Adams opinion on the releases though. Interesting either way, especially in the u18 section. Plenty of time to develope and youth contracted players are hardly going to impact the wage structure.
