Aston Oxborough (born 9 May 1998) is an English footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Norwich City, and has previosuly represented England for the Under 17's.

Football[edit]

Early Years[edit]

In 2008, Aston Oxborough was scouted by Norwich City while he was playing for a local team, Hemsby Hornets.[3] He originally started playing in defence, but was placed in goal due to his height as a youngster.

Oxborough joined the Norwich City academy in 2010 when he was aged 12.[4] On 30 April 2013, aged 15, Oxborough played for the Norwich City Under-18's for the first time against Manchester City Under-18's. This was mostly due to the Under-18's having played in the Youth FA Cup just before the game. In his U18 debut, Norwich fell to a 4-1 defeat to Man City.[5]

In January 2014 Oxborough spent time with an England training camp specifically for goalkeepers. The following February he was called up to the Under-16's England team, where he made his debut against Denmark in a 4-1 win.[6]

Oxborough was offered a Norwich City Academy Scholarship in 2014[7], with him being offered a two year contract in 2016, and would play for the Norwich City Development Squad.[8]

In total Oxborough played 23 games for Norwich Under-23's in the Premer League 2. His performences for the development squad were rewarded, and in April 2018 Oxborough signed a new 2 year professional contract with Norwich City.[9]

Norwich City[edit]

For the 2018-19 pre-season, Oxborough was listed in the squad for the tour of Germany.[10] He made his first appearance for Norwich during the pre-season friendly against Kings Lynn replacing Remi Matthews in the 66th minute.[11]

At the start of the season Oxborough was third choice keeper behind Tim Krul and Michael McGovern. His first involvement with the Norwich first-team came on 19 September 2018, when he was named on the bench for Norwich's Championship match at Reading. Oxborough was an unused substitute as Norwich won the match 2–1.[12]
