Holders Norwich City Under-21s visit 2012 champions Gorleston in the second Norfolk Senior Cup semi-final at Emerald Park tonight. And the non-league Greens will be able to take heart from the fact they beat the young Canaries on the way to their memorable Carrow Road success almost two seasons ago.

Gorleston boss Stewart Larter, who will be without Peter Lambert and Zak Clarke, said: “We are underdogs again, which will probably allow us to play with a little bit more freedom and try one or two things we wouldn’t normally try. Maybe we’ll set up a little bit differently.

“The message will be they are beatable. That’s what we have to believe for the whole time we play, whether that’s 90 minutes, 120 (extra-time) or further if it goes to penalties.”

The Premier League youngsters beat Wroxham in last year’s final on their own turf thanks to goals in either half from Oli Durojaiye and Cameron McGeehan. It was the first time City had won the competition since 1989.

Professional Development Coach Jerry Gill, Norwich’s boss in the Senior Cup, told Norwich City TV: “We’ve played Fakenham and Cromer but I think it will be a tougher test.

“It’s about attitude and professionalism when you turn up at these games. I should imagine there will be a good crowd there. It’s a semi-final to get into the final of a cup competition, and we want to win every game that we go into.”

The winner of this evening’s last-four tie will face Wroxham on Thursday, May 15.

  • sharky, we agree so rarely! FINN exposed himself (Oooh, errh, Missus!). He failed to build on potential friendships in his need to score cheap shots. Monkey Nuts has continued to maintain his ethical stance... FB must be experiencing a Helsinking feeling now. ;-)

  • FINN, I`ve been a FANN but now you have taken to 1p5wichian dissing, I disown you. Silverware, not silver wear ... I, not i... City not city... Something not some thing... really, not Really. You have let yourself down badly. Await the wrath of our wrathful ones. Blaffen Wijs, BP2 and Steely Dan are not far away. Then there`s Stew, Pa, el dingo, blackdog2, waclor and Dubai Canary. You are in deep .. waters.

  • I`ve also replied on the `Nathan Redmond` board, FINN.BLUE. Apology accepted. Your comment was out of character for you, and I respect your coming on to make amends. I only get pedantic about grammar & stuff if it is accompanied by `trollery` or `smarta**ery`. Anyway, nobody`s perfect - certainly not me or, more outrageously, even Barking Wise ;-) Is `Anteeksi` Finnish for `apology`? I think I may drop the Dutch stuff, now our two Netherland recruits` agents are plotting their escape routes from Hughton Hell. Ugric is the `in thing` now, including the Finno- branch. You can be my Finno-Ugric consultant! I expect some folk will say `Uralic` if you do.....Pax Canaria.
