Drury hails unbelievable season
Norwich full-back Adam Drury believes this season has been as good as any for the team during his 11-year stay at Carrow Road.
The 33-year-old has experienced the highs and lows of promotions and relegations with the Canaries, but he classes a mid-table finish in the Premier League as the best achievement of the lot. Drury captained City the last time the club were promoted to the top flight under Nigel Worthington in 2004, but life back in the big-time didn't last long and a year later they were relegated from England's top division. A few years later he was part of the squad that crashed out of the Championship and into League One where the team were embarrassed by Paul Lambert's Colchester on the opening day of the season as the Canaries were turned over 7-1 in their own backyard. However, that dark day was also to prove to be the club's turning point as, within days of that thrashing, Lambert was appointed as the City manager and it's been non-stop success for them ever since. Drury, who is nursing a groin problem ahead of Sunday's final game of the season against Aston Villa, has nothing but praise for the Scot who has made so many of their players' dreams come true. He told Canaries Player: "This has just been an unbelievable season. If you had said that going into the last game, we could be looking to finish as high as 12th, people would have thought you were joking. "Everyone involved has done a fantastic job and hopefully everyone has enjoyed it. The job the manager has done here in the three years has been unreal. To stay in the Premier League is probably the biggest achievement because of the gulf in money."
