For years, Norwich City fan Roger Smith has been cataloguing the club’s history; from goal scorers to appearance makers and everything in between.

Through his 'Canary Companion' book, Mr Smith has kept track of all things yellow and green, providing a one-stop shop for City statistics, facts and oddities.

However, with the current crop of players breaking all kinds of club records, the Canaries anorak is constantly in need of updating the companion.

In the run-up to the Premier League season, Mr Smith compiled the fifth edition of the book, which is available for fans to purchase for £10.

And Mr Smith has been kind enough to offer two copies of The Canary Companion: Updated Fifth Edition for us to give away to a pair of lucky fans.
