Biography

Triallist Damon Lathrope came on as substitute for Norwich's Under-18s in their 3-0 home defeat against Chelsea on 4th March 2006.

The young midfielder from Stevenage joined the Norwich acadmy as a first year scholar in 2006/7. This was the second time that Academy Director Ricky Martin has signed Damon, having signed him for Cambridge United some years previously. When Cambridge dismantled their youth setup, Ricky swooped to offer Damon a place with the Norwich academy. Damon had also spent time with Kit Carson's Football Development Centre.

In January 2008, Damon was awarded a two and a half year professional contract with Norwich after Glenn Roeder had been impressed by the youngster during reserve team matches

At the end of November 2009, Damon was loaned to Bishops Stortford of the Conference South. This was extended for a second month (end of January 2010)

On 14th May 2010, Damon was released by the Canaries without having made a first team appearance.

Following a successful trial, Damon signed for Torquay on a two year deal in July 2010. Torquay boss Paul Buckle said: "Damon has done enough in his time here to deserve his contract. He has an abundance of quality on the ball, with two good feet and he has a good pedigree after two years at Norwich."

He agreed a new two year deal with Torquay on 22nd May 2012. He had played 44 times in the 2011/12 season

On 12th November 2013, he joined Hereford on a month's loan.
