Jonathan Tomkinson had already earned his senior debut for Norwich City earlier this season and the 20-year-old defender followed that up by making his first league start for the Canaries.
Tomkinson logged 90 minutes on Tuesday in Norwich City’s 1-0 road loss at Burnley, his second senior appearance for the English Football League Championship club. Tomkinson made his full debut in a EFL Cup victory over Birmingham City in August and was rewarded by manager Dean Smith on Tuesday night at Turf Moor. Tomkinson made five clearances, one block, and won two duels in the league showdown. Although he did not come out on the winning end, Tomkinson did show promising moments in what he will hope is the first of several appearances this season.
“I thought he was excellent,” Smith said about Tomkinson’s performance against the league leaders.
