Norwich City fans have been enjoying a fun final day of the season, with long-serving goalkeeper playing his final match in a 4-0 win over QPR at Carrow Road which saw Wes Hoolahan score twice and set up the other two goals.

Ahead of kick-off Hoolahan won the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy for the first time in his nine seasons at Carrow Road, holding off the challenge of runner-up Jonny Howson and third-placed Ivo Pinto in the public vote.

The Irishman then continued his celebratory day, when there was nothing to play for but mid-table positions for either side, by opening the scoring in the 22nd minute.

The playmaker cut on to his left foot on the edge of the box and lashed a low shot into the bottom-right corner, with the help of a very slight deflection off the thigh of QPR defender Nedum Onuoha, which Alex Smithies couldn't keep out.

Hoolahan then teed up Alex Pritchard to volley home for 2-0 in the 60th minute and claimed a second assist when putting Josh Murphy through to lash home for 3-0 from close range.

An excellent day was then topped off for the 34-year-old when Cameron Jerome unselfishly cut back to allow him to fire home the fourth from near the penalty spot in added time.
