City fan and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy sufferer James Frost to bring out the match ball before Charlton game

NORWICH City will welcome 15-year-old James Frost to Carrow Road tonight as the Community Hero for the Sky Bet Championship fixture with Charlton Athletic.

James has a rare condition known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in 3,500 boys in the UK and which means he is a full-time, powerchair user.

His condition causes a weakness in his proximal muscles near the trunk of his body around his hips and shoulders, and James therefore depends on the help of others for his personal care.

James describes himself as a typical teenage boy, who loves Norwich City and attends as many matches as possible.

As tonight’s Community Hero, James will bring the match ball out for the referee to collect from a special plinth before kick-off.

Throughout the season the Club is celebrating the good work and personal achievements of local people in their community, whether that’s in the emergency services or armed forces (past and present), carers or charity champions, super fans or the region's sporting heroes, we’ll be celebrating it before every match.

Ahead of every Sky Bet Championship home match, Norwich City will invite a deserving community-minded individual to place the match ball onto a special plinth ready for the referee and players to emerge from the tunnel and collect it for the game.
