FORMER Welwyn Pegasus player Harry Toffolo lifted the FA Youth Cup with Norwich City last night (Monday) as they beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

While Toffolo celebrated, Alex Davey, another former Welwyn Pegasus product, was being consoled after his Chelsea side lost 4-2 over the two-legged final.

The Canaries’ had triumphed 1-0 at Carrow Road in the first leg courtesy of a late Cameron McGeehan penalty.

Toffolo and his team-mates followed that with a 3-2 win in front of 17,676 supporters in London.

The night began well for Chelsea as French striker Jeremie Boga fired home to level the final on aggregate on 15 minutes.

City’s Joshua Murphy saw his cross-shot turned into his own net by Adam Nditi to restore the Norfolk side’s one-goal advantage.

Before half-time Davey was harshly adjudged to have tripped Carlton Morris in the box and McGeehan buried from the spot to put Norwich 3-1 up on aggregate.

After the break Norwich wrapped up the cup as Joshua Murphy started and ended a counter-attack to make it 4-1.

Boga pulled one back for Chelsea with his second of the night, but it was too little too late as Norwich went on to lift the cup.
