A sports broadcaster from the region has found herself becoming the face of Scottish champions Celtic.

Former Framlingham Earl High pupil Summer Harl has landed the role of lead anchor for Celtic TV, the SPL club's television channel.

However the 27-year-old, originally of Stoke Holy Cross, has adopted the Scottish team as her own, but has not found her split loyalties to be too much of a stumbling block.

She said: 'Norwich City will always be my home club – my dad was a season ticket holder so I was only ever going to support one team.

'I used to go to games when I was younger and played for Norwich City girls as well.'

The two clubs have built quite a friendship, through testimonial visits for Adam Drury and Tim Sheppard in recent years.

She added: 'When I tell people who I support I only ever get a good response – people say how lovely Norwich is and how much they enjoyed the atmosphere at Carrow Road during the testimonials.

'I have a City mug in the Celtic media office, and it's still intact, so people can't mind too much.'
