Billy Gilmour has been produced eye-catching performances during his Norwich City debut on Friday in a pre-season friendly match against non-league opposition King’s Lynn Town.
The 20-year-old midfielder, who impressed at Euro 2020 with Scotland, joined the Canaries on a season-long loan from Chelsea to experience regular first-team football.
And despite, just joined up with his new team-mates this week after taking some time off following his participation at Euro 2020 with Scotland, Gilmour, showed glimpses of quality during his 45-minute cameo, as the Canaries ran out 3-1 winners in the Norfolk derby.
The loaned-out Blues midfielder, who who wore the number eight shirt on Friday, got 45 minutes of football under his belt and has made an immediate great impression.
The central midfielder is comfortable receiving the ball anywhere on the pitch, something he showed during his first 45 minutes in a Norwich shirt.
Gilmour, who only got to take part in Friday morning’s session before being thrown straight into the action against King’s Lynn Town later that day, busy in possession and showing a nice range of passing through the first 45 minutes in a Norwich shirt.
A couple even made a bold comparison between him and legendary footballers trio Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and Paul Scholes.
