It's wonderful that so many football stars are community-minded enough to seek election to our Norfolk parliamentary, district, town and parish seats.
A scan through all those nominated reveals a clutch of famous names.
You would have thought the likes of ex-Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson had other goals in mind and wouldn't be looking to score for the Greens in the Mid-Norfolk parliamentary seat.
And can we hope for a touch of celebratory robotic dancing if England player Peter Crouch wins for the Greens in North Norfolk District Council's Gaunt ward?
Meanwhile former Arsenal and England defender Tony Adams is busy trying to defend his Hellesdon South East seat for the Tories in Broadland.

And it's not just football stars. Opera diva Katherine Jenkins is giving it some welly for the Greens in South Norfolk's Rustens ward, while Hollywood legend Greg Peck is probably causing voters to swoon in Broadland's Eynesford ward, where he's standing for the Conservatives.
Meanwhile Harry Webb is hoping to win a place at Westminster, representing Great Yarmouth for the Green Party.

If you don't succeed Harry, there's a possible great singing career ahead following in the footsteps of your famous namesake, who changed his name to - all together folks - Cliff Richard.
One Horning candidate, Dick Turpin, has automatically secured his seat as only eight people wanted a place on the 11-seat north Norfolk parish council. Stand and deliver? You might say he did stand, and has already been delivered.
