Norwich City Elite Football Programme

Develop your education and football with Norwich City Canaries

The Norwich City Elite Football Development programme is an exciting tier in Norwich City FC's player pathway, new for September 2016.

Delivered in partnership with the club & Easton & Otley College, the innovative programme will provide an official 'Shadow Squad' for Norwich City FC's Academy - the Norwich City Canaries - and is designed to support talented young footballers.

The programme is for 16 to 18-year-olds, and combines 11-a-side football development with a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science at Easton & Otley College.

The education provision forms the core of the programme, while former Norwich City captain Adam Drury will head up the football element.
