Former Norwich City star Darren Huckerby draws a crowd in King’s Lynn
Hucks proves he's still a hit in Norfolk as fans queue at Waterstone's
Former Canaries player Darren Huckerby played to the crowd of a different kind in King's Lynn on Thursday night.
Hucks was signing copies of his autobiography at the town's High Street branch of Waterstone's where fans queued to meet him.
The former Norwich City footballer was voted player of the year twice during his five years with the club and the crowd made the most of the town's late night shopping to chat with the popular star.
Store manager Val Browning said there had been a lot of interest with people who couldn't be there on the night pre-ordering his book.
'He still has a very loyal following right throughout Norfolk,' she said.
Hucks began his career with Lincoln City and also played for Man City and Newcastle United, but it is for his long spell with Norwich that he's most fondly remembered.
