Norwich Career: Youth
Current Club: Dereham (Ridgeons League)
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


Dereham's promosing Under-18s striker Ryan Hawkins had a trial with Leyton Orient in February 2012. Hawkins, a former Norwich City Academy player, caught the eye of the League One club’s scouts during Dereham’s 4-3 FA Youth Cup defeat to Orient in November 2011. The 17-year-old, who scored a wonder free-kick during his side’s defeat at Brisbane Road, has now been asked to return to train with Orient as a result of his initial trial.

First team manager Matt Henman said: “Ryan’s been with us for a few years after being released by Norwich and everybody at the club is wishing him well. If any of our young players get opportunities to land a professional contract we would never stand in their way. It puts our club and youth development in a really positive light which will help us to continue to attract the best young players. Some are already not too far away from being involved in the first team here and many have had a taste. Playing in the FA Youth Cup is to the benefit of the boys, it can bear the fruits of their hard work. It gives them a chance to put themselves in the shop window for clubs like Leyton Orient to spot them.
