The coming Bank Holiday weekend could prove to be rather memorable for Norwich City youngster Harry Toffolo.

The 19-year-old full-back is hoping to be involved for loan club Swindon Town in the League One play-off final against Preston at Wembley on Sunday – the day before his parent club face Middlesbrough in the Championship final on Monday.

The promising England Under-20 international missed the Robins' dramatic 7-6 aggregate victory over Sheffield United in the semi-finals with a dead leg but is fit and hoping for an exciting weekend.

'I spoke to the technical director there (at Norwich) and he said there's a ticket, but a win on Sunday and then on Monday would be perfect,' Toffolo said.

'It would be a ridiculous end to my first year in professional football and I've experienced so many things I haven't before, so to have this opportunity to play at Wembley at 19 is something which makes you pinch yourself.

'You have to get your head right and focus because if not it can pass you by.'

Toffolo, who helped City win the FA Youth Cup in 2013, has enjoyed a successful first season playing first-team football.

Often playing in a left wing-back role, he has made 29 appearances for the Wiltshire side this season, but is yet to feature for the Canaries and his long-term future remains unclear, having settled in with the Robins.

'It's quite strange actually, to have both of my teams at Wembley,' said Toffolo, speaking to Total Swindon Sport.

'I knew we (Swindon) were definitely but in Norwich's first leg at Portman Road, Ipswich kind of shut out Norwich but in the second leg the sending off helped us massively and then it was over when Nathan Redmond scored.

'Ipswich looked like they were kind of tiring and Norwich took advantage and deserve their place at Wembley.

'There are a few tickets dishing about I'm sure but we'll have to wait and see with our result on Sunday.

'I've got the luxury of my parents living in Hertfordshire so I can just pop back there and then pop to Wembley.'
