Former Everton title-winner thrilled to take Norwich role

Neil Adams has been appointed as the caretaker manager of Norwich City.

The 48-year old former Stoke City, Everton, Oldham Athletic and Canaries midfielder has stepped into the role vacated by Chris Hughton's sacking which occurred on Sunday.

Adams, who has been in charge of Norwich's U18 side, was delighted to be given the opportunity to take a senior position.

"To say that I am delighted to have been offered the opportunity of managing Norwich City Football Club would be a massive understatement," said Adams who won the 1986/87 first division title with the Toffees.

"People know what this club means to me, and so it goes without saying that we will be doing everything possible to ensure that we maintain our top-flight status for next season.

"These final five games will be a huge test for us, and everyone must step up to the mark. But with the full backing of these magnificent Norwich supporters we will have every chance of achieving our objective."

Adams' first match in charge of the 17th-placed Canaries will be against 18th-placed Fulham at Caven Cottage next Saturday.
