As Paul Lambert and his first team squad lifted the League One trophy at Norwich Castle, the young Canaries were busy in the Aalst, Belgium, where they came through as convincing winners of the International Youth Tournament, staged by host club Eendracht Aalst.

The trip, sponsored by Friends of Norwich City Youth and the NCFC Shareholders' Association, saw the Academy players repay that faith with 4-0 group stage wins over Eendracht and Belgian second division club Beveren.

Their quarter-final against Belgian Juliper League club Westerlo saw a 3-0 victory before FC Antwerp were beaten 1-0 in the semis.

The final against Dutch Eredivisie club ADO Den Haag saw another 3-0 victory to clinch the tournament without conceding a goal.

Midfielder Reece Hall-Johnson won the Player of the Tournament Trophy thanks to his five-goal haul.
