NORRIS’ NOUS IS VITAL TO SLADE
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.”
