The midfielder, who grew up in Dereham, appeared on the morning football show with former player Jimmy Bullard and presenter John Fendley.

Cantwell has been calling fans to offer support during the coronavirus lockdown.

He said: “Between me and the club we came up with the idea it would be a good idea to get in contact with some of older fans we’ve got. We have an elderly support base and those people are struggling at the moment under the lockdown rules.

“I thought it would be a nice idea to get in contact, have a word with them and keep spirits up.
