...........keeping a beady eye on ex Canaries and those out on loan
In the last Life After City feature we stated that five ex Canaries were managing in the Football League after Paul Cook took over at Accrington. Now make that three, after Paul Peschisolido and Gary Megson were sacked by Burton Albion and Sheffield Wednesday respectively. And City's former full back Dennis van Wijk is now coach with Belgian Second Division club Charleroi after parting company with Mons.
Young striker Josh Dawkin has gone out on his second loan of the season. Having spent time at Kettering Town, his latest journey takes him to Cambridge United, also in the Conference. Hot prospect Matt Ball, who will be 19 years old on the 26th of March, has gone on loan to Macclesfield in League Two. He came close to becoming a full Canary last season when he sat on the bench for the Championship match against Crystal Palace.
Hearty congratulations to Michael Nelson who was on the winning side in the Scottish League Cup Final as Kilmarnock shocked Celtic with a 1-0 win. Fraser Forster was on the losing side. Ched Evans, who will go down in history as one of our better loanees, is having a great season with Sheffield United in League One, having netted 26 times in thirty six matches so far. After scoring just one goal in twenty three appearances for Leyton Orient, Jamie Cureton has returned to old club Exeter City on loan. And Ryan Jarvis has also gone west, to Torquay United on loan until the end of the season after hitting just three goals in twenty four appearances for his parent club Walsall. Leon McKenzie has been sent to jail for six months for sending bogus letters to the police in order to avoid speeding convictions.
