Norwich City's Austrian tour got off to a perfect start with the club's development squad hammering their Ferencvaros counterparts on Tuesday afternoon in Pinkafeld.

Glenn Middleton, Diallang Jaiyesimi and Ray Grant put the young Canaries into a commanding lead before Scottish youth international Middleton notched again and Jamie Eaton-Collins completed the rout in the second-half.

Todd Cantwell was back on duty for Dmitri Halajko's squad after featuring in the first team on Saturday in the 3-0 win at Peterborough. Cantwell's vision created the opener after an even first 25 minutes when he picked out Middleton who finished with his left foot.

Jaiyesimi turned home Ashley-Seal's square ball from close range, abefore turning provider for Grant who thumped home from the edge of the box.

City put the friendly firmly out of sign four minutes before the interval when Ashley-Seal pounced on wayward back pass before Middleton bundled home from point blank range. Eaton-Collins notched within two minutes of his arrival at the break to seal the win. City's U21s wrap up their week-long tour with a game against FC Slovacko's U21s at the same venue on Friday afternoon.
