Luton keeper Tyler proud to beat ex-club Norwich

Luton Town goalkeeper Mark Tyler was proud of their FA Cup giantkilling at Norwich City.

Tyler had dreamed of playing at Carrow Road since he used to climb on to a crate in the stands to watch his hero Bryan Gunn between the sticks each week. He joined the club aged nine but never made it into the first team. At 35 it was the first time he had played there.

"This is where I started," he said. "This is where I wanted to be as a boy, so to come back here and keep a clean sheet means the world to me.

"I left Norwich when I was 14 to sign schoolboy forms at Peterborough. I kept on coming here to train and it was a case of staying here and not getting into football or going for trials and seeing if I could make it."
