Norwich City raised the eyebrows of their supporters on Sunday as they announced former shadow chancellor Ed Balls would replace Alan Bowkett as chairman of the club.

The news was met by a mixed reaction from City supporters, who joined the discussion on social media.

Welcoming Mr Balls to the Board, city’s joint majority shareholders Delia Smith and Michael Wynn Jones said his vast economic knowledge and extensive experience with both the public and private sectors would be a huge asset for the club.

They said: “We’re absolutely delighted to confirm that Ed Balls is the new chairman of Norwich City.”
