Six more players announced for Team Wes v Team Russ

16 April 2019

Wes Hoolahan and Russell Martin have announced a further six players who will be joining their teams in the celebration match at Carrow Road.

Kicking off on Monday, May 6, ‘Team Wes’ will take on ‘Team Russ’ in a special match to mark their service to the Club over the years, with proceeds going to the Community Sports Foundation and the former players’ chosen charities.

The duo recently picked their first group of teammates as the countdown to the big game began, with six more players now confirmed:

‘Team Wes’

David Fox joined City from Colchester United in 2010 and finished third in City’s 2011-12 Player of the Season voting. Fox has gone on to feature for four more clubs; most notably for Plymouth Argyle where the midfielder has played over 100 games and is still a regular in the side.

Gary Holt joined the Canaries in 2001, winning the Player of the Year award in his first season and going on to make over 150 appearances for the Club, including being part of the squad that was promoted to the Premier League in 2004. Holt was also part of the coaching team for the 2014-15 season when City secured promotion to the Premier League via the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.

Elliott Ward played 39 of City’s 46 games in 2010-11, therefore a key part in Norwich City’s promotion to the Premier League in 2011. After having short stints at five other clubs, the 34-year-old started the 2018-19 season with Notts County, featuring 18 times this season.

‘Team Russ’

Andrew Crofts scored for City on his debut for Norwich against Watford, and went onto to help the Canaries gain promotion to the Premier League in 2011. The midfielder made 68 appearances across two seasons for Norwich before returning to Brighton, the side he originally joined from.

Darel Russell made over 100 appearances for Norwich at both his stints with the Canaries. After coming through the Academy, Russell made 132 appearances between 1997 and 2003 before joining Stoke City. In 2007, Russell returned and played 112 more times for Norwich. The 38-year old ended his career at Tampa Bay Rowdies.

Adam Drury made over 500 appearances throughout his career, 326 of which were at Norwich City between 2001 and 2012. He went on to make a handful of appearances for Leeds United and Bradford City and now works for the Community Sports Foundation as well as being among the managerial staff at Wroxham FC.

The duo will be announcing more big names in the coming days.
