'Great test' for Norwich City after defeat in anniversary friendly

Norwich City manager Alex Neil has described his club's defeat by West Ham as a 'great test' and said: “I think it shows the strength in depth that we do have. The lads held their own and I was pleased for them.”

West Ham won the pre-season friendly by 1-0 in a match that marked the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Carrow Road ground. The two clubs met in 1935.

“It was always going to be tough when they made nine substitutions, particularly when that team is most of their regular starters from last season.

“It was a great test for our boys, particularly that last half an hour, to make sure they dig in and try and do as much as they can and be stretched and tested as much as they could be. That was good preparation for the league.”

– Alex Neil, Norwich City manager
