Carrow Road will host a third FA Youth Cup tie of the season next month, after Norwich City Under-18s had the details of their fifth round tie against Newcastle confirmed.

The match has been scheduled for a 7pm kick-off on Wednesday, February 7, when David Wright's team will try to secure a second quarter-final in three seasons for the Canaries.

After beating Barnsley 4-1 in dramatic style at Carrow Road in December, coming from behind with four goals in 10 minutes, the U18s went on to beat Derby County 4-2 earlier this month.

It was another memorable evening, coming from behind twice to take the game to extra-time – thanks to a late penalty save from Ryan Dickerson – before finishing the job.

Newcastle won 5-0 away to Brighton in the third round and then 3-2 at Crystal Palace after extra-time in the fourth round.

Entry for the game is priced at £3 – as clubs are not allowed to make tickets free – and are available at canaries.co.uk, by phone on 0844 826 1902 or from the ticket offices at Carrow Road, Castle Mall or Chapelfield.
