Norwich City's FA Youth Cup quest will begin at Championship club Hull City after landing a third round away tie.

Graeme Murty's squad must travel to face the Tigers before Saturday, December 19 in the prestigious national youth competition, which the Canaries memorably won in 2013.

Neil Adams' squad, which featured the likes of Harry Toffolo, Josh and Jacob Murphy, dethroned holders Chelsea 4-2 on aggregate over two legs in front of a live televised audience and 21,595 crowd at Carrow Road for the first leg.

The club will announce details of the confirmed date and venue for the tie in due course.

Norfolk non league neighbours Dereham Town have the extra incentive of a glamour tie at home to Premier League Sunderland at the same stage of the competition if they edge past Mansfield on Friday night at Field Mill in their second round tie. The young Magpies beat Peterborough United 2-1 in a dramatic stoppage time finale earlier this month to set up their trip to Nottinghamshire.
