Pre-season is starting to take shape for Norwich City Under-23s.

The Canaries have confirmed their development squad will face National League side Sutton United in a friendly on Saturday, July 28.

The game at Gander Green Lane is a 12pm kick-off on the same day that City's first team will be playing League One side Charlton Athletic, around 18 miles away, in a 3pm friendly.

Matt Gill's U23 squad also took on Sutton at the Knights Community Stadium in pre-season last year, when Diallang Jaiyesimi and Todd Cantwell were on target in a 3-2 defeat.

The south London side finished third in the top tier of non-league last season but were beaten 3-2 at home by Boreham Wood in the play-off semi-finals.
