Norwich City have won the FA Youth Cup after a tough second-leg battle with Chelsea.

Norwich won the club's first FA Youth Cup since 1983 with a hard-earned 3-2 second-leg victory over holders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Canaries were defending a slender 1-0 advantage from the first leg following a stoppage-time penalty from captain Cameron McGeehan, who was once on Chelsea's books.

The Blues wasted little time in wiping that lead out as Jeremie Boga swept them ahead on 15 minutes.

However, an own goal from Adam Nditi, diverting in Joshua Murphy's cross, put Norwich back in front on aggregate, with another spot-kick from McGeehan making it 2-1 on the night before half-time.

After Islam Feruz had missed a great chance to equalise, Norwich scored again on the break as Joshua Murphy converted a low cross from his twin brother Jacob to put the tie beyond Chelsea, despite a late goal from Boga.
