BluesTV travelled with the Birmingham City under-18 squad for their FA Youth Cup fifth round tie away at Norwich City.

Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary, witness the meticulous preparation of the Blues Academy staff and the highs and lows as a dramatic night in Norfolk unfolds.

Saturday’s home game against Millwall has been designated by the club as its ‘Academy Day’.

The aim of the day is to showcase the great work that is being done with the club’s young players on a daily basis at Wast Hills.

The Academy’s importance to Blues has been illustrated more than ever this season with boss Lee Clark giving no fewer than six youngsters their first team debuts.

There will be a number of events taking place both in the build-up to, and during the npower Championship match against The Lions (3.00pm kick-off).
