Aaron Redford and Emerson Hyndman earned Fulham a 2-0 win at Norwich on Saturday.

An Aaron Redford strike and an Emerson Hyndman penalty earned Fulham’s Under-18s a 2-0 win at Norwich City on Saturday.

On a cold afternoon at Norwich’s Colney training centre, Fulham made a bright start. Jordan Evans had the ball in the net early on but saw his effort ruled out for offside.

George Williams then forced the Norwich keeper into a save with a 20-yard drive, before Fulham went in front in the 41st minute. The Whites broke quickly and a sublime pass from Hyndman found Redford who fired home a fine left-footed finish.

The second half continued in much the same vein, with Fulham dominating proceedings. However, they failed to create any clear openings until after the hour mark when a couple of good chances went the way of the Whites. Hyndman saw a free-kick well saved, before Williams burst clear in the 70th minute but elected to square the ball and saw his attempted pass miss the advancing Evans.

Fulham’s pressure finally told, though, and they were awarded a penalty in the 79th minute when Norwich failed to clear a corner and Josh Smile fed Noe Baba who was tripped in the area. Hyndman stepped up to confidently score from the spot to make sure of the points.

Fulham: Norman, Sheckleford, Donnelly, Baba, Edun, Sambou, Smile, Williams (Elworthy 70), Hyndman, Evans, Redford (Leacock-McLeod 60).
