The Norfolk under 18’s Representative squad go into their penultimate match of the 2016/17 season against Suffolk at the FDC on Tuesday night, with the chance to lift the East Anglian Counties Competition trophy.

Norfolk need just one point from their match against current Champions Suffolk to put themselves mathematically out of sight.

They head into their final home match of the season with a 100% league record, a huge step forward in contrast to last season, which featured many inconsistent results.

Not only are Norfolk unbeaten in the league this campaign, they are also yet to concede a single goal, keeping clean sheets against; Bedfordshire (8-0), Hertfordshire (0-4) and Cambridgeshire (3-0). However, the squad are not just seeing success defensively, but fifteen goals in three league games show that they have also been clinical in front of goal. 

Connor Ingram, Josh Hazell and Ben Fowkes will be hoping to add to the score sheet for a second consecutive game after all netting in the most recent match against Cambridge in January.

Norfolk will be hoping to carry on this exceptional form on Tuesday when they face a Suffolk team who had a poor start to the season, being defeated in both their opening games. Despite this bad start, results have picked up recently, beating both Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire in their last two outings meaning that they will look to end their season on a high.

The reverse fixture towards the end of last season saw Suffolk some out victorious, winning 3-2 in a thrilling contest back in April.
