Ipswich Town U18's completed the double over their Norwich City rivals with a 2-0 win at Colney.

After an even first half, Town were unfortunate when a Jack Ainsley goal was ruled out for offside on the stroke of half-time.

After the break 14-year-old Connor Wickham came on to add height to the attack and Town eventually made the breakthrough when Ainsley crossed for full back Kurt Robinson to score from close range.

Minutes later the roles were reversed as Robinson turned provider for Ainsley to put the result beyond the Canaries' reach.

In injury time Lewis ward brought off a tremendous save to deny Norwich a consolation.
