Thousands of inflatable canaries were handed out to supporters during some of the most crucial games of the era.

And this weekend they will be making a return as Norwich City prepares to take on relegation rivals Sunderland.

The club is to hand out 3,000 of bright yellow inflatable birds to young City fans on Saturday as part a host of pre-match activities.

Also returning are the clap banners that proved to be a huge success during last weekend's 3-2 win over Newcastle United.

Around 25,000 of them will be given to fans in an attempt to turn Carrow Road into a cauldron of noise once again.

People are advised to get to the ground early to get their free canary, which will be given to children with a match ticket.
