A Norwich City fan who has flown 10,000 miles to see his beloved Canaries play says he will 'stand outside and listen to the noise' if he can't get a ticket.
Norfolk-raised Winsor Dobbin, 63, a wine consultant and journalist, has flown from Tasmania, Australia, with the hope of finding a ticket for Saturday's game against Manchester City.
A supporter of the Carrow Road club for more than 50 years, Mr Dobbin said he simply had to take his chance to see the Canaries play in the Premier League for the first time in person.
And he took to Twitter to try and make that dream a reality.
"Made it to Norwich from #Tasmania and looking for a ticket for #NCFC on Saturday. Fingers crossed," he said.
