Rows of people with their shirts, photos and cards at the ready lined the ground floor of Chapelfield shopping centre to meet Norwich City players Emi Buendia and Jamal Lewis on Wednesday afternoon.

For some of the children in the crowds it brings a sweet end to their Christmas holidays as many will head back to school this week.

Some fans also had the chance to meet footballer Ivo Pinto, who made a fleeting visit to the Canaries Official store to speak to supporters.

Also among the crowds was Community Sports Foundation junior ambassador Jamie Abbott, the namesake of Norwich City Football Club's annual Jamie's Game, which welcomes stars from the worlds of film, television, music and sport to take part in a charity football match.
