A defender from
Welwyn Garden City, Harry Toffolo has been with Norwich City since
signing as an Under-14 in 2008. He is a graduate of the Hatfield
development centre and was previously with Stevenage Borough. He
is described as a solid left-sided defender who gets himself into
advanced attacking positions to support his team.
.On 31st March 2011, it was announced that he and eight others
would join Norwich's Academy in the summer of 2011. Academy manager
Ricky Martin said: I would like
to wish all nine boys the best of luck and hope they enjoy long
and successful careers at Norwich City.
At the end of February 2013, Toffolo was called up to the England
Under-18 squad for the clash against Belgium in March 2013.
Toffolo played in both FA
Youth Cup semi-final matches against Notts Forest which the
Canaries won to progess to the FA Youth Cup final. He also played
in both legs of the final which the Canaries won 1-0 and 3-2 against
Chelsea to secure victory in the FA
Youth Cup for the first time in 30 years.
He was on the bench for Norwich in the Capital One Cup win over
Crawley on 26th August 2014
On 20th October 2014, he was loaned to Swindon Town for a month
to gain first team experience. This was extended to the end of
the season due to his good form for Swindon's first team. At the
end of March 2015, he was called up into the England Under-20
squad and made his debut in a win against the USA.
Toffolo played in Swindon's League One play off final defeat
After a promising pre-season in which Harry got plenty of match
action with inujuries to Martin Olsson
and the delay in signing Robbie Brady,
he made his first team debut on 25th August 2015 in the 2-1 Capital
One Cup win at Rotherham. He was called up in October 2015 for
the England Under-20s again and played the full 90 minutes in
a 3-0 win over Holland on 7th October 2015 as part of the Mercades
On 19th October 2015, he was loaned to Rotherham on a one month loan deal. This was extended until January 2016 but he made just seven appearances for the Millers. After returning to Norwich, he was loaned to Peterborough on 21st January 2016 until the end of the season.
Toffolo made his England Under-20 debut in the 2-1 defeat to Canada in late March 2016.
Toffolo was surprisingly loaned to Scunthorpe on 31st August 2016 until January 2017 and made his Iron debut in a 4-0 win over Southend on 10th September. This was extended in January 2017 until the end of the 2016/17 season.
Norwich activated a one year extension to Toffolo's contract in May 2017.
On 31st August 2017, Toffolo was loaned out again joining Doncaster Rovers until 3rd January 2018. This was somewhat of a surprise to Norwich fans as they had not been impressed with the form of new signing James Husband whilst Jamal Lewis, the club's only other left-back, was out injured until the New Year (Marco Stiepermann can play on the left if Norwich use a three man central defence)
