Saturday was an action packed day, especially for our competition winner Kevin Walker who won the chance to sit in the Anglian box to watch Norwich City take on Manchester City, meet the F2 football freestylers and award the Anglian Home Improvements Man of the Match.
Kevin Walker, after enjoying an entertaining half of football was then treated to go pitch side to meet the F2 and watch them carry out some unbelievable tricks with a football. If you weren’t at the game, here’s what you missed.
After the game ended 0-0 in a very action packed game, it was Leroy Fer who was named the Anglian Man of the Match and Kevin was thrilled to give the award to Fer.
Kevin won this fantastic prize by entering our ‘Meet the F2’ competition after seeing their ‘Football in the factory’ video. He said of the day, “Can I just say a big thank you for a fantastic day and wonderful hospitality from Anglian, the F2 and your colleagues. It was a great prize and everything about the day was superb. My thanks also goes to the wonderful staff at Carrow Road who made the day so special.”
Before the game kicked off, Ryan Bennett was named the Anglian Home Improvement’s Player of the Month for January following some great performances in the heart of the defence.
Norwich City put up a fantastic defensive display against a team that thumped them 7-0 on their ground. Goal keeper John Ruddy made some incredible saves, whilst new signing Joseph Yobo showed his credentials during the 90 minutes. The sky blues enjoyed the majority of possession, but they couldn’t break down the Canaries back four.
It was Norwich who looked like they had opened the scoring when top goalscorer Gary Hooper found the net after following up well from Leroy Fer’s header, but it was rightly disallowed for offside.
Nathan Redmond was proving dangerous for the Canaries and although Alvaro Negredo hit the crossbar, it was Redmond who created some very good chances. His first he blazed over the bar, then he turned creator in the dying embers of the game, but his cross was just inches ahead of van Wolfswinkel’s outstretched leg.
