Problems with Norwich City season tickets triggering supermarket alarms is said to be isolated to those carrying multiple cards.

Yesterday we reported that a small number of season ticket holders had triggered supermarket security alarms, with the tickets thought to be the culprit.

The club has since tested the tickets at one of the shops and said the issue is thought to only affect people with three or more tickets stored together.

They say someone carrying multiple bank cards, with the chips aligned, could experience the same problem.

However, in yesterday's report, David Olley said he had experienced the issue in various supermarkets with just two tickets.

So far, the club has received no official complaint from its 22,000 season ticket holders, but welcomed those fans with problems to contact its service department.
