Norwich arrange two top flight friendlies

Norwich will prepare for Championship football with pre-season friendlies against Premier League sides Newcastle and Everton at Carrow Road. The Canaries, who will lift the League One title after their final game of the season at home to Carlisle on Saturday, host Newcastle, promoted as champions from the Championship, on Saturday July 24 before Everton visit a week later.

Boss Paul Lambert told the club's official website: "I think the main objective is to play competitive games. The results are not the be all and end all, you want to win but it's about getting people fit and the two Premier League opponents will be terrific for us, especially at Carrow Road.

"Newcastle have just gone up and will bring a terrific fanbase down. Everton, being the team they are under David Moyes, have been absolutely brilliant the few years he's been there. They will be two really tough games."
