A Norwich City fan has launched a campaign to get a band to re-record one of their songs in tribute to a first team player.

Canaries player Simon Lappin has been dubbed the King of Spain by fans because “he looks Spanish”, according to terrace chants.

Now a fan is hoping to persuade one of his favourite groups, Yorkshire band Hope and Social, to re-record the lyrics of their song “King of Spain” for a one-off tribute to the Canaries midfielder.

Steve Plunkett, from East Bilney, near Dereham, said: “When I heard the terrace chant it made me laugh and think of the Hope and Social song called King of Spain.”

Mr Plunkett, who is a freelance music reviewer, said the band were currently busy in the studio recording their next album, but he hoped that in the longer-term they may be able to find time to do a version based on the lyrics he had penned.

He said: “The band have been extremely grateful to me that I have got them, hopefully, some more listeners and a wider audience.”
