Norwich Boss Throws In The Towel

Norwich Boss Throws In The Towel
After watching his side get knocked out of the FA Cup at Preston at the weekend, Neil Adams has resigned from his post as manager of Norwich City.

Many Norwich fans will be pleased that he has gone, when he took over from Chris Hughton as caretaker, it was hoped that he would be able to keep the Canaries in the top flight, but they were relegated at the end of the season.

Despite that disappointment, the former player was given the manager's job on a permanent basis and charged with the task of returning Norwich to the top flight at the first time of asking and they are still in a position to achieve that goal, but the 49 year old stepped down after the 2-0 loss at Deepdale with many fans calling for his head.

Mike Phelan has been installed as caretaker.

A statement on Norwich's official website read: 'I firmly believe that we are still on course for a crack at promotion back to the Premier League. That is where this club belongs.

'However, I feel it is in the best interests of the team that an immediate change is made in order to ensure a positive impact on results.

'It goes without saying that I sincerely hope the team achieves success this season and I would like to say a huge thank you to the supporters who have backed me during my tenure as manager.'
