NOR­RIS’ NOUS IS VI­TAL TO SLADE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Josh Richards

YEOVIL boss Paul Stur­rock has been re­united with vet­eran David Nor­ris af­ter the for­mer Ip­swich and Leeds midfielder put pen-to-pa­per on a non-con­tract deal with the Glovers.

The 34-year-old en­joyed a suc­cess­ful spell along­side Stur­rock at Ply­mouth Ar­gyle and the Yeovil boss is hope­ful the midfielder will re­dis­cover that form in League Two.

Stur­rock has been on the hunt for new re­cruits at Huish Park, with the in­jury to midfielder Wes Fog­den, adding to an al­ready con­gested list of ab­sen­tees.

Nor­ris rose to promi­nence un­der Stur­rock at Ar­gyle when he won pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship with the Pil­grims in 2004 and was named the club’s player of the year in 2006.

Af­ter leav­ing Home Park two years later, Nor­ris went on to play for Ip­swich, Portsmouth and Leeds be­fore mov­ing to Peterborough United ear­lier this year.

“It’s a dif­fi­cult one be­cause I don’t know how long you can have a non-con­tract player,” said Stur­rock.

“Whether we take it to Christ­mas, I don’t know. It was im­por­tant to get some­one of his ex­pe­ri­ence in. Even in the dress­ing room at half-time against Lu­ton, he was mak­ing com­ments to play­ers that were ben­e­fi­cial.”
