Young City fan meets his hero at Carrow Road

JONNY Howson returned to league action last Saturday with an impressive performance in City's 5-0 victory over Brentford at Carrow Road.

However, during his recent recovery he took some time to meet young Junior Canary William, who won the opportunity to meet his favourite player as part of one of the Junior Canaries prize draws.

Staged as a complete surprise, William thought he was being escorted on a behind the scenes tour only to quickly stop off in the Directors' Lounge to be surprised by his hero.

"What a wonderful day it was and how kind it was of Jonny Howson to give up his time to meet me and William and what a wonderful opportunity to see behind the scenes at Norwich City," said William's mum.

Jonny then surprised William even more by giving him his matchworn shirt and boots from his game against Stoke last season. It was certainly a day he won't forget in a while.

If you'd like to be in with a chance to meet your favourite player, then simply sign-up to Junior Canaries at or by calling the ticket office on 0844 826 1902.
