When a German family visited England on holiday, dad Norwich couldn't resist taking a detour to his namesake city to watch the Canaries take on Fulham.
Norwich Ruesse made his first trip to Carrow Road from Steinfurt in Germany on Good Friday, after following the club's fortunes since childhood.
Mr Ruesse said: 'I don't know where the name came from, it's one of those crazy coincidences.
'It was a problem for me when I went to school, as every teacher asked me how to spell it.
'When I was ten years old I learned Norwich was a football club which was great and now I'm older it's no longer a problem.
