Connections between City and their weekend opponents

ROTHERHAM United’s first-choice goalkeeper Lee Camp has links to the Canaries, having spent two separate spells at Carrow Road during his career.

Originally coming through the youth system at Derby County, City were one of several teams Camp represented on loan ahead of joining QPR permanently in the summer of 2007.

He later settled at Nottingham Forest before returning to Norwich on a free transfer in January 2013.

Stints with West Brom and Bournemouth followed prior to the stopper being recruited by Rotherham at the start of last season; going on to make in excess of 50 Millers appearances to date.

Another player among Rotherham’s present ranks is Tom Adeyemi; a graduate of City’s Academy who is currently on loan from Cardiff City.

Adeyemi made 17 appearances for City before moving on to join Birmingham in 2013 ahead of switching to the Bluebirds a year later.

Numerous Norwich players have taken in temporary spells with the Yorkshire outfit in recent times, with Harry Toffolo, Tony Andreu and Vadis Odjidja all spending time on loan there last season; Toffolo doing so having made his City debut at Rotherham a few weeks earlier.

Going further back, both Ian Henderson and Rossi Jarvis joined the Millers on a short-term basis in 2007, moving there at a time when former Canaries forward Mark Robins was in charge at Millmoor.

The duo were joined there by City icon Craig Fleming, who spent 18 months with Rotherham after a memorable ten years in Norfolk which included him being named as the Club’s 2003-04 Player of the Year.

Helping his side earn promotion to the Premier League that season, the Hall of Fame member notably played every minute of the subsequent top-fight campaign – spending more time on the pitch than any other player in the division.
