On-loan full-back George Francomb hopes his performances are catching the eyes of those at Carrow Road as he continues his extended stay away.

The Canaries academy product has featured in all nine of AFC Wimbledon’s League Two games since joining at the end of August.

And the 21-year-old is determined to maintain his impressive form – both for the remainder of his second month at the Dons, and for his future prospects at Carrow Road.

“I think there has been someone watching me at most of the games I have played – so hopefully the good performances that I am putting in will be taken on board. I just have to come in here every day and keep learning,” said Francomb, who saw the Dons lose 2-1 at home to Cheltenham on Saturday. Fleetwood await this weekend.

“I’ve played every game since I have been here so I am more than happy to stay and fight for the cause. Saturday was probably one of the best performances since I’ve been here.

“We have Fleetwood next and we have done well in our last three away games and hopefully we can go there and get something.”

  • This is not just isolated to City is it ? Take a look at the International results of the 'Home' countries. Youthyounger players struggle to gain any meaningful experience because of the demands of instant success placed upon the bigger clubs. There needs to be far more stringent limits on overseas players, but then we are delving into the politics of Germany's EU superstate. Two non home grown players as a maximum per fielded eleven would take a while to work but it would eventually prosper, even if seemingly a backward step in the begining. The whole system is so corrupt that nothing will ever happen.

  • Some good comments on the "Academy" board, too.

  • It`s a pity George couldn`t catch a few eyes closer to home, like Carrow Road, along with Ayala and Vaughan. Or at least somewhere more elevated than L2 (no disrespect intended to Wimbledon). Our Rangers acquisition is yet to make an appearance. At least our 4th goalkeeper (IS it ONLY 4?) has played in a League Cup match. Meanwhile, Dec & Jed are going out on loan. Or so we were told. Those two young men must wonder what the ***k is going on.

  • I`m with you both, Crazy & waclor. I really am baffled by this goalie business. I know Bewilderwood is a great Bunn fan and perhaps Hoots let him have him just to give him something to do, and have somebody to talk to\play with. And keep him out of Holty`s way. But what`s happening to Dec`s & Jed`s careers? Dec not even on the bench for England U21s. And when we had no spare right-back `cos of Whitaker`s prolonged turned ankle, George thought maybe he had an opportunity to step up? Didn`t he go on loan to Scottish Prem last season? What IS occurring at the Carra? Not that anybody is likely to tell the fans anything. George is more likely to get injured than gain worthwhile experience in L2. I hope he goes on to great things, but this is not going to help his progress much.

  • He isnt learning anything playing in League 2, he would learn more training with the first team. A complete waste of good young talent. Believe in youth and they will succeed.

  • I can`t help feeling you`re right, Bootneck, sadly. Specially the `corrupt` bit. Trouble at Norwich is we hold back young British talent in favour of old, not so talented British types sometimes. All this stuff about Financial Fair Play will be a mess of beans once the Big Club Lawyers rip holes through it. I know I`m an old git, but I did like it when you saw Norwich players out and about like normal people, instead of gadding about like Lotus Eaters in their..... Lotuses! Arnold Bennett saw it coming in his novel "Hero of the Five Towns". Or was it "Matador"? While Blepp Satter is at FIFA, there is no hope. we`re all doooomed.

  • This is just typical of how badly young players are treated by Norwich. If they are unwilling to give the young stars a chance, what is the point of spending money on an academy. Had Wayne Rooney been born in Diss he would still be out on loan somewhere.
