Youngsters learning soccer skills got some tips on goal celebrations when Norwich City striker Kei Kamara dropped into a training session at Cromer.

More than 30 children aged from five to 12 take part in the weekly coaching at the town's sports centre based at the Cromer Academy, polishing up their skills around themed sessions linked to Canary players, such as 'shoot like Grant Holt', 'dribble like Elliott Bennett' and 'pass like Jonny Howson.'

But the cromer crew had a special treat when the Sierra Leone international turned up for a session to 'celebrate like Kei Kamara' - in which he showed them how to dance with a team-mate and do his trade-mark heart-shaped-hands sign.

The on loan player from US side Sporting Kansas City, proved a big hit with the youngsters said Dan Wynne, communications officer for the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation.

'He told them about his football and how he got into it. He is a warm and big character who goes down well with kids,' he added.
