They may not be able to force their way into the Norwich City team pushing for promotion but that didn't stop eager fans from wanting to meet midfielder Alex Tettey and defender Grant Hanley.
A queue of yellow and green snaked its way out of the door of the Carrow Road shop as fans waited for the signing session.
Kerron Lemmon, 14, said he had already met winger Onel Hernandez, has been to every home game and has already bought his season ticket for next year in the hope of seeing Premier League action.
He was excited to meet Scotland international defender Hanley because 'he is a great captain and a good centre back.'
Christian Drobak, 15, also a season ticket holder, was confident that Norwich will beat Sheffield Wednesday on Friday and be automatically promoted. He said that he was excited to see Norwich face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

The players signed t-shirts, programmes and footballs and had photos taken with fans.
