Norwich City goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely put Canaries goalkeepers John Ruddy, Paul Jones and Ben Killip through their paces with a game of Spikeball.

Kiely teamed up with City youngster Ben Killip to take on senior goalkeepers John Ruddy and Paul Jones in a training drill known as Spikeball.

Spikeball requires two pairs to stand on opposite sides of a trampoline and the aim is to stop the ball touching the ground.

After the serve, the teams are allowed a maximum of three touches before the ball needs to hit the trampoline again.

Norwich City tweeted the video on Saturday, posting: 'Our drone captured this unbelievable rally in @deankiely40's innovative goalkeeper drill, Spikeball!'
