SkyBet League One side Oxford United have signed defender Cameron Norman from Evo-Stik League South Premier club Kings Lynn Town.
Norwich City academy product Norman, who helped the Canaries win the FA Youth Cup in 2013, was one of the revelations of a fine season for the Linnets, who finished runners-up to Hereford FC before losing the play-off final to Slough Town.
Norman is nominally a full-back, but he played a huge role in Lynn’s goals tally this season, scoring 7 goals and providing numerous assists.
King was signed just before the opening game of the season and it is understood he spent time on trial with Northampton Town who, along with Portsmouth, Oxford United and Doncaster Rovers were said to be keen on signing him at the time.
The 22-year-old left The Walks at the end of the season and has now finally signed for one of those clubs, Oxford, whose manager Karl Robinson told his club`s official website: “He scored plenty of goals and was leading the way with assists as well so I’m not surprised clubs were looking but he came here and took a look at what we are building- not just a new training ground but also in terms of the squad – and he wants to be part of that.
“He is tall, very athletic, has a great attitude and we believe is an outstanding prospect for the future.”
Norman said: “As soon as I met Karl and looked around here I knew I wanted to join. I have loved my time at King’s Lynn and want to thank them for everything, but this is an exciting move for me and a chance to get back into the EFL and show what I can do”.
