CANARIES’ RUSS HITS 300 MARK

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NOR­WICH cap­tain Rus­sell Martin still has plenty to of­fer, ac­cord­ing to care­taker boss Alan Irvine, af­ter rack­ing up his 300th ap­pear­ance on Fri­day.

The de­fender led out the Canaries against Brighton as they ap­proach the end of a frus­trat­ing sea­son.

Hav­ing been at Car­row Road since 2009, the 31year-old has been a loyal ser­vant .

“He is a great cap­tain on and off the pitch. Any player who ap­pears 300 times for one club has achieved some­thing very spe­cial,” said Irvine. “I am sure he has an aw­ful lot more games in him.”
