Conor Cable

Norwich Career: 2010-12 (Academy)  
Current Club: William Woods University (USA)
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


Conor Cable from Whaplode in Lincolnshire only started playing football when he joined Holbeach United Under-10s. For the first season he really struggled to make the goalkeeper position his own. Perseverance paid off, though, and the second season saw him become the first choice in that department and from there he started to develop.

After two years the mentorship changed hands and John Coote and Chris Stebbings took over management of the then Under-12 team, a period during which Conor’s potential became more evident.

He was spotted by a scout from Nottingham Forest andspent two years at their player development centre and academy, before being released aged 14.

He then trialled for Derby, Peterborough and Norwich. The Canaries signed him on a two-year pre-scholarship contract, during which time he improved immensely under the coaching of Darren Lovell and Darren Plowman.

During his Under-16 season Conor played in a Premier League tournament at which City became national champions. In five games, he only conceded a total of one goal.

He has since played up for Norwich’s youth team and for the Reserves in a 3-1 defeat by West Bromwich Albion

He was released by the Canaries in March 2012 and went on trial to Championship sides Ipswich Town, Leicester City, Peterborough United, Derby, Birmingham City and Bristol City. The Robins offered him a scholarship at Ashton Gate starting in July 2012.

He moved to the USA in the summer of 2014 on a football scholarship at William Woods University
