Stuart Webber signs new three-year contract

19 September 2019

Norwich City are delighted to announce that Sporting Director Stuart Webber has signed a new three-year contract with the Club.

Webber joined the Canaries from Huddersfield Town in April 2017 and, working closely with Head Coach Daniel Farke, has since helped guide the Canaries to the Premier League.

The new contract will now run through to the summer of 2022.

Joint Majority Shareholders Delia Smith and Michael Wynn Jones told “The contract for Stuart was something we were extremely keen to finalise.

“We’re absolutely thrilled at the job that Stuart has done, working with Ben [Kensell] and Zoe [Ward] on the Executive Committee.

“It has been an immense team effort from Daniel [Farke], the players and staff so far. Stuart has been amazing in being the real driving force behind our Club philosophy and vision.”

Webber said: “I’m obviously thrilled to sign. I’m very grateful to be in this position at what is a special Club.

“I’m looking forward to overcoming the hurdles that await and continuing to build on what we’ve achieved so far.

“I’m extremely thankful to have the support and trust of our Majority Shareholders, Delia and Michael, and the rest of the Board, as well as to be working alongside Ben Kensell and Zoe Ward on the Executive Committee.

“When we first sat down to talk about the new contract it took all of ten minutes to sort out. It was a really simple and quick conversation.

“I’m fortunate to have a special relationship with Daniel [Farke], which is very much based on complete trust. I’m looking forward to another three years of working closely with him, as we attempt to achieve our objectives and targets.

“The players and staff have been amazing during my time with the club so far and we wouldn’t be in this position without their hard work and commitment. I’m excited to see how far our current group of players and staff can go.

“It’s important we don’t stand still. We must now continue to strive to improve and better ourselves in all areas. Whether we’re successful or not, win or lose, we must continue to be together.”
