Norwich City players toast fan who left them £100 for drinks in his will

Norwich City players raised a glass in memory of a lifelong fan who left them £100 in his will for a round of drinks.

Barrie Greaves died in December at the age of 83, and decided to leave his heroes a little something to say thank you.

And while it looked as though the Canaries were drinking mostly water ahead of their game against Manchester United at Old Trafford, the team raised a glass to thank Barrie for his gesture.

“Cheers, Barrie!” the club tweeted, while club legend Bryan Gunn tweeted “Thanks Barrie” along with two beer emojis.

Barrie’s daughter Sarah responded to the club on social media, tweeting “Thank you so much! Now win tomorrow.”

She also tweeted: “Dad would swap all this Twitter attention though for three points on Saturday,” as well as adding: “Proper drink tomorrow though guys after those three points?!?”

Sarah told ITV that the donation was clause three in her father’s will, and said “the Canaries will just always be part of our family”.
