The doors of Carrow Road were thrown open for an Easter half-term open day on Tuesday.


Hundreds of young Canaries fans enjoyed the chance to meet the City players, as well as get their autographs and have their photos taken with them.

The youngsters were also able to take a look behind the scenes at the home of the Canaries, including the home dressing room, set up as it would be for a match day.

There were opportunities for face painting in the players’ lounge and to get their photo in the manager’s chair in the media room as if they are answering questions at a press conference.

Most of the City squad made an appearance, as they took some time out from preparations for their important Premier League clash at Fulham on Saturday, their first since Under-18s coach Neil Adams replaced Chris Hughton as manager.

Among the players taking part in the open day were Wes Hoolahan, John Ruddy, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Anthony Pilkington, Gary Hooper, Leroy Fer, Sebastien Bassong, Nathan Redmond and Josh Murphy.

  • The most important thing is values. As long as the youngsters get to learn about tattoos, silly haircuts, faux hero-worship and platitudes, they`ll be fine, just fine.

  • Can't see any pictures of Wes in the photo gallery. The photographer has probably forgotten what he looks like. Boom boom! Can't help noticing in the third photo the security man behind Ruddy and Nash, staring menacingly at a 6 year old boy, heavily clad in hi-viz bullet proof jacket, dripping with lanyards of accreditation and ready to taser the youngsters at the first sign of trouble. What a sad indictment of the world we live in.
