Neil Adams' backroom team delighted to be involved

CANARIES’ first-team coach Gary Holt insists the new management team will look to bring a ‘feel-good’ factor back to Norwich City next season.

Holt left his job as boss of Falkirk to rejoin the Club after Neil Adams’ appointment, and was introduced along with Mark Robson to the press on Thursday.

The former City midfielder is looking forward to energising the squad and supporters with attacking football.

“That’s what you want and that’s how you win games. We have to entertain – I’m a firm believer in that. We’re in the entertainment business so we have to go out and win the games,” he said.

“Hopefully we’ll bring in attacking flair, a feel-good factor around the place and an enjoyment.”

Robson, who steps up from his role with the Under-21s on a permanent basis, believes the Championship experience of individuals in the squad will help City greatly come the campaign’s start in August.

“I think the fact that we’ve got a lot of players who have played in the Championship is a real bonus,” added the former Barnet manager.

“It gives us a bit of a head start on a lot of other clubs, given that we’ve just come down from the Premier League.

“I’m delighted to be asked to take that role on and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

Holt also had no hesitation in returning to Norfolk for his third spell with the Canaries.

“It’s one that I didn’t think would happen so quickly! It’s a bit of a shock but when I got the phone call from Neil, it wasn’t too hard a decision with my feelings for the Club,” he said.

“It was a tough decision to leave the role I was doing, but as easier decision because I know the area, know the club and know the person that I’m going to be working for.”

On his role at Falkirk, he added: “It was an eye opener. It was a massive learning curve in my coaching pathway, but one I embraced and one I enjoyed. I would not have changed it. It was phenomenal, every single day.”
