Joe Newton’s impressive performances for Royston Town have attracted interest from Championship side Norwich City, since joining the club from Colney Heath the teenager has made 16 appearances.
Royston boss Steve Castle said: “Newton has been excellent. He has performed superb for a 17-year-old and has also raised a few eyebrows with people I know in the professional game.
“He’s been terrific. We have had a problem with the left-back situation but he has helped us with his fitness and is performing very well.
“I’m sure he’ll get some opportunities [at the professional level].
“If he keeps his feet firmly on the ground, which I’m sure he will because he is a tremendous boy, then there is no reason why he couldn’t give it a go.”
