Hughton gets defender fitness boost
Marc Tierney has handed Chris Hughton a pre-season boost by insisting he is '100% fit' after ending last term with a groin injury.
The highly-rated full-back suffered the injury in December and failed to figure in former boss Paul Lambert's plans in the second half of the Premier League campaign as the side secured a comfortable mid-table finish.
However, Tierney has now confirmed that he is raring to go for the new season in a month's time as he is being put through his paces by new boss Hughton, along with the rest of the first-team squad, at the training camp in Austria.
He told Canaries Player: "It has been fantastic. The lads are all working really hard.
"We're doing three or four sessions a day, and we worked hard the week prior to this as well.
"We're concentrating, we're all guns blazing, we've got the two new lads in and it's all going really well.
"I'm 100% fit now so I can't wait. I did a bit of work with Neil Reynolds over the summer and the other physios so I really can't wait for the first game, and to put my hand up and say I'm ready for first team action again.
"I tore my abductor, but it's fine now and I've been raring to go for a while.
"I'm just enjoying getting back into training with the lads and it feels brilliant."
