Plenty of fans at Norwich City's most recent clash would have made the journey up from Nelson's County.

But for one pair of supporters, their 350-mile trip to watch the club draw with Burton Albion started in the opposite direction - in Scotland.

Father and Son Ian and Rhys Cook live in Dundee, but since 2012 have travelled around the country to watch 58 Norwich matches.

Flying from Edinburgh, and staying overnight in Burton, Mr Cook, 52, said: 'My and son and I we come from Dundee, in the north-east of Scotland, and we love Norwich City.

'I first supported Norwich in 2012, at a game against Everton. The game was 2-2. A couple of months later we went down to Chelsea, once we were there two games supporting Norwich, that was us hooked.'

He said while things weren't currently as rosy for the club as fans would like, manager Daniel Farke should be given time.
