Pre-season continues against Colchester for Norwich City Under-23s today.

The young Canaries take on their Colchester counterparts at the League Two club’s Florence Park training complex in a friendly at 1pm.

Matt Gill’s U23s have enjoyed a positive start to their preparations for the new campaign, winning both of their matches during City’s training camp in of Germany last week.

An own goal and an Anthony Spyrou strike earned a 2-1 victory over Paderborn U23s, which was followed by an emphatic 6-0 thrashing of a young Borussia Dortmund U23 squad featuring four goals from Adam Idah and a brace from strike partner Spyrou.

Long-serving Canaries defender Russell Martin played both of those games ahead of an expected loan exit but it is unclear whether he will continue with the U23s.
