Former Norwich City ace Darren Eadie becomes a Community Sports Foundation ambassador

The Community Sports Foundation (CSF) has unveiled former Norwich City star Darren Eadie as its newest ambassador.

Mr Eadie - who made 204 appearances for the Canaries over a six-year period in the 1990s, scoring 38 goals - has joined the charity alongside a raft of famous CSF ambassadors.

He joins the likes of former City stars Iwan Roberts, Dean Ashton, Paul McVeigh and Craig Fleming, as well as the BBC's Jake Humphrey, Sky Sports' Simon Thomas, Paralympian Danny Nobbs and NCFC director Delia Smith.

The ambassadors all have a strong affinity with Norwich City and Norfolk and an understanding of the role that football and sport in general can play in helping thousands through CSF.

Mr Eadie said: 'I am extremely proud to give my support to a brilliant charity working with the club I love. Sport is such an important part of any person's wellbeing, no matter what level it is at.'

CSF director, Ian Thornton, added: 'We are thrilled that Darren has agreed to join our team of ambassadors. I firmly believe that the success of the charity is due in no small part to the excellent people we have involved including ambassadors, staff, volunteers and partners.

'Darren's contribution on the pitch for Norwich City was extremely memorable and he will now add to that legacy by representing the club's official charity partner.'
