Norwich City’s girls come through Tottenham Hotspur test

Norwich City's Girls' elite squads have taken part in a two-day training camp, which included a fixture against Tottenham Hotspur Girls.

The girls' elite programme is part of a three-tier advanced programme at Football in the Community (FITC).

The Elite programme comprises of three age groups – under-10, under-12 and under-15. Participants of the programme attend weekly training sessions throughout the season.

All three age groups took part in closely-contested fixtures, with the under-10 match, in particular, standing out.

For several of the Norwich under-12s it was their first taste of nine-a-side football and they matched an experienced Tottenham side right to the final whistle.

For the under-15s it was a tough challenge and they can be commended for their work effort they demonstrated during the game against such tough opposition.

Emma Fletcher, girls' and women's football development officer, said: 'The girls train once a week in their squads and receive a mixture of technical and tactical based sessions.

'It is important that the girls get the opportunity to play together in match situations and Tottenham have a very good set up, so we were delighted that they agreed to bring their teams.'

She added: 'The girls were a credit to the scheme and they should be proud of their performance during the two-days of the training camp'.
