Dozens of Norwich City fans shared their memories of club legend Jeremy Goss as he signed copies of his new autobiography at Jarrold.

The star’s sensational goal against Bayern Munich in 1993 was a favourite topic, from fans who had been watching on television in Scotland, listening on the radio or hearing stories about it years later.

City fan Elliot Symonds, 42, was a university student in Aberdeen in 1993, when he watched the game on TV.

He said the waitress came in and turned the TV off during the match, but the Scottish oil rig workers told her to turn it back on, just in time to see the famous goal.

The footballer showed fans memorabilia from his career as he was interviewed about the book, Gossy, by BBC Radio Norfolk’s Chris Goreham.

Items included the boots he wore when he scored his most famous goal, and shirts from Lothar Matthaus from the Bayern Munich match, and Dennis Bergkamp.

He said the book was not about victories and cup wins, but the story of someone who survived in a tough industry which was full of sarcasm, arrogance and big timers.

Ed Clarke, 36, from Attleborough, said he remembered watching Goss in his heyday.

He said: “Maybe his book should be given out to a few of the young players to say ‘keep working. If you keep going you might get success’.”

Asked if there were any players he hoped would not read the book, Goss said Dion Dublin – because he still owed him a £20 Christmas bonus from when he was his apprentice.
