One Hull of a draw? MICHAEL BAILEY puts together six lessons learned from Norwich City’s Saturday salvage job.

While international breaks are annoying and disrupt the rhythm of the football season, this one probably came at a very good time for City.

Robbie Savage must have been eating a big old slice of humble pie at breakfast on Tuesday morning after the Republic Of Ireland beat Wales in the winner takes all game at the Cardiff City Stadium to win their place in next month’s play-offs.

As a victorious Cameron Jerome trudged home from Madejski Stadium a fortnight ago, he left one sentiment – if only the next game was tomorrow.

A week ago I was in Scotland, still delighted that Sam Sexton had brought the British heavyweight boxing title back to Norwich – and still wondering whether I really ought to take advantage of the blank receipt book the Edinburgh taxi driver had given me.

You know that cliche about the word legend being used and abused? Well, when it comes to Darren Huckerby, the description is as accurate as many of the howitzers that he launched in the good name of Norwich City FC.

The conversations now involving the name James Maddison say it all – MICHAEL BAILEY analyses the midfielder’s rise to Norwich City prominence.

DISS TOWN U13s 11, Stow Town Hornets 4. It was a case of Thomas’ nap hand as Thomas Knapp came off the bench to grab 5 second half goals, helping Diss complete another big win. The skilful Knapp produced a lesson in dribbling as he tormented the overworked Stow defence. Knapp’s fifth goal was a sublime chip from outside the box. Ben Williamson had earlier scored twice to put the tangerines 2 up. An own goal followed, then strikes from Tristyn Tunmer and Ben Shepherd had Diss in full control at the half. Diss seemed to take their foot off the pedal in the second half and this allowed Stow Town to come back into the game. However Shepherd added a 2nd against his former club and the rest was left to man of the match Thomas Knapp. Diss:- Ready, Lawton, Chenery, Williamson, Broadley, Lanchester, Tunmer, Cottam, Shepherd, McGhie, Coates, Rich, Freeman & Knapp.
