The Canaries Trust say they hope the exit of Norwich City chief executive Jez Mozey will be 'mark the turning of a corner' for the football club.

In a statement, the organisation said: 'While the board of the Canaries Trust welcome the departure of Jez Moxey, a person whose approach and policies have, in our opinion, contributed significantly to the rift between fans and the football club, we are also concerned that once again the club finds itself without a chief executive at a critical period,' said their statement.

'We have just experienced a period where the club appeared to be drifting without clear direction and we hope that the board will now be able to find ways to re-engage with the fans and to appoint a new chief executive who can drive the club forward. This has not been a good year for the club or its fans and we trust that this incident will mark the turning of a corner.'
