Supporter credit key theme from radio phone-inJOINT majority shareholders Delia Smith and Michael Wynn Jones, along with Chief Executive David McNally, have all paid tribute to Norwich City’s supporters.
Their comments came during a live phone-in on BBC Radio Norfolk on Monday morning, where the trio discussed in-depth the Club’s relegation from the Premier League and the search for a new manager ahead of the Canaries’ 2014/15 Championship campaign.
They praised the loyalty of the fan-base at Carrow Road, with McNally pointing to strong Season Ticket sales for next season.
“A huge thanks to the supporters, who have backed the Club despite the difficult season, and who have ensured that Season Ticket levels again next year will be closed at levels that we can’t go past. That’s extraordinary – we’ve been relegated and the Season Ticket holders have backed the Club once again, and it reflects how fantastic Norwich City fans are.
“I want them to be assured that everyone is going to work harder and smarter. It’s about doing everything we possibly can to get this club moving forward again, progressing again and playing good football again. That’s all it is. That’s all it’s about.
“I want to thank them for being so generous and so encouraging. I know the press manage to get hold of all the negative ones, but the ones Michael and I meet are so good and so encouraging.
“I think that, long, long before I became a board director and I had my season ticket, I always thought that this was a very special football club and I still think that.
MICHAEL WYNN JONES
“I would like to thank the fans, as we have always done. Thank you for your patience, thank you for your ideas, thank you for bearing with us, and be reassured that we’ll do everything we possibly can.”
