He was also a substitute for the Norwich first team when they faced Aston Villa last October.

Linnets' director of football Rob Back said this afternoon: “We are extremely pleased to be able to bring Archie to the Walks for the new season.

"He is an extremely talented young man and we are all looking forward to working with him on the training pitch and then in full action very soon.

"Norwich City hold Archie in a high regard so we are very grateful to Norwich City for allowing him to come to us for the new season.”

The Linnets have particularly thanked Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber and loans manager Neil Adams for their work on the deal.

The announcement comes just a few days after star striker Adam Marriott committed his future to Lynn.
