Today it was my pleasure and privilege to meet two NCFC heroes of mine: Alex Tettey and Christoph Zimmermann. Both have displayed great devotion to my beloved yellow and green shirt, leading by example both on and off the pitch.

They presented me with a certificate (from two metres away, of course!) for my fundraising cycle ride to raise money for Sir Norman Lamb’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.

It was also brilliant to finally meet Sir Norman, who has campaigned tirelessly for many years for better mental health support, provision and awareness in the local area.

Alex and Christoph chatted with me for ages, discussing everything from mental health and family to NCFC’s promotion prospects and the miraculous longevity of Alex’s knees!

It was also brilliant to have a journalist and photographer from the EDP present to chat to us all – the continued support of the local press is both vital and appreciated as I seek to keep growing both awareness and funds for better mental health in Norfolk.

I’ve got a busy week ahead, but I’m always happy to talk to any Norfolk folk who might want to meet and/or ride with me.
