Norwich City fans are being given the chance to share a slice of the club's history by being photographed with the play-off trophy.

To mark the club's promotion to the Premier League, the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Trophy will be on display in a glass cabinet in the main reception area of City Hall from 9am to 6pm on Thursday.

Canaries fans will also be able to sign a book of celebration which Norwich City Council will present to the club when the trophy is returned to Carrow Road.

Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council, said: 'It's very generous of the club to allow us to us to be guardian of the trophy for a day.

'It's the perfect chance to invite fans to come to City Hall, see it in person, and have their photo taken to mark the occasion.'

Norwich City chief executive David McNally, said: 'The events at Wembley on Monday were some of the greatest in the long history of Norwich City Football Club. Not just because of the wonderful performance of Alex Neil and his men, but because of the unbelievable support we received from the club's irrepressible supporters.

'It's regrettable that we can't manage a full parade in the city, but the opportunity to be pictured with the trophy and write a message of congratulations will allow fans to leave their own permanent imprint on this wonderful occasion.'
