In a promotion-winning campaign there is always plenty for our Norwich City reporters to shout about.
However, a good cause has benefitted from one of the team doing the exact opposite thing - by taking a vow of silence.
For 24 hours, not a single word passed Norwich City reporter Connor Southwell's lips, with the 21-year-old carrying out a sponsored silence for mental health charity Mind.
The reporter, who has covered the Canaries for this newspaper since September 2019, collected donations ahead of his 24-hour silence on Thursday, April 22, managing to break the £1,000 mark in the process.
He said: "It was one of the toughest things I've done, to be honest.

"Everyone has been affected by mental ill health in one way or another, so to be able to play a small part in helping people is something I'm more than happy to help with."
