Community Sports Foundation role for former Canaries captain.

FORMER captain Adam Drury is to be unveiled as the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation's newest ambassador. 

The 36-year-old, who recently announced his retirement from playing football, is a special guest at today's game against Brighton and will be officially introduced to the crowd in his new role when he brings out the match ball ahead of kick-off.

A firm favourite in his playing days, Drury amassed 361 appearances for the Canaries, scoring four goals in an eleven year spell at Carrow Road - which also saw him captain the Canaries to the Division One title, lift the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy as Player of the Year and be inducted into the Club's Hall of Fame.

Commenting on the appointment CSF Director Ian Thornton said: "Adam was an ambassador for Norwich City both on and off the field during his playing days.

"He wanted to stay involved with the club, and in his role as a CSF ambassador, he will help us continue to inspire and change lives in the local community."

Adam joins other personalities and former players in support of the Club's official charity partner, the Community Sports Foundation, which helps over 20,000 people every year achieve their goals through sport, supporting some of the most disadvantaged, disabled and talented people across Norfolk.

Drury added: "It's an honour and privilege for me to be involved with the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation at a Club where I spent so many years and have so many great footballing memories. They do such great work, which I got to see first-hand when I was a player and I look forward to supporting them now in their work as an ambassador."
