Norwich City have reached the FA Youth Cup final after a successful penalty shootout against Nottingham Forest.

William Britt was the hero for Norwich as they beat Forest 5-4 on penalties at Carrow Road to reach the final of the FA Youth Cup.

The goalkeeper guessed correctly and dived low to his left to save from Forest skipper Jack Blake and send the Canaries through to their first Youth Cup final in 30 years after a gripping tie had finished 1-1 on aggregate.

Norwich’s youngsters were flawless with their five spot-kicks and it was Reece Hall-Johnson who send a near 10,000-strong crowd into raptures by squeezing home the decisive penalty in the shootout.
