Former Canary appeals to fans for backing for Virgin Money London MarathonCITY legend Adam Drury is looking to Canary fans once more for support, ahead of the Virgin Money London Marathon this Sunday.
36-year-old Drury, who retired from the game in 2014, will take on the 26.2-mile course to help disadvantaged and disabled people in Norfolk enjoy the benefits of sport, through the work of the club’s Community Sports Foundation.
With over 300 appearances for the Canaries during his 11-year stint in yellow, fans and club staff alike remember the former defender fondly.
Several members of the Yellow Army, as well as current City players, have already shown their support, by donating on his fundraising page.
The former Club captain explained his close affinity with the local community, saying: "Norfolk is a second home to me. The people have been nothing but great to me and my family when we’ve been here and now this is a chance to give a little back to the community.”
Drury, already an ambassador for CSF, is one of four runners who are raising funds as part of a team; he will be joined on the start line by Matt Watson from CSF, Chloe Pellican from the club’s Legal & Football Services team, and Canary fan Phillip Minns.
Adam met Matt and Chloe recently at Carrow Road and they talked about their marathon preparation.
