Norwich City’s Alex Neil yesterday said that he is confident in his team’s ability to deal with the “Huge task” that lies ahead for the following season, after the Canaries secured a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough in the playoff final secured their promotion back into English football’s top flight yesterday.
Neil Adams was at the helm of Norwich City the first half of the season, choosing to revamp the team’s attacking options, signing Cameron Jerome on a three-year contract from Stoke City. Jerome would go on to become the top goal-scorer for the club, with 20 in 35 appearances. Lewis Grabban from AFC Bournemouth was another of the club’s summer signings, managing 12 goals for his team.
The 2014/15 season started strongly for Norwich City, as they took 20/30 points in the first 10 games, even after opening with a disappointing 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers in August. Following a slump in September and October after just a single win in 10 games, promotion looked doubtful. However, the season was not over yet, as Norwich began to snowball from December. In January, after new boss Alex Neil took over, the Canaries won 17 out of their next 25 games. This secures Neil’s back-to-back promotions after taking Hamilton to the SPL in 2013/14.
Speaking about his team’s promotion, manager Alex Neil stated, “There will be an incredible amount of hard work to make sure we can compete at that level because the gulf between the Premier League and the Championship is vast. However, teams manage to go up and do well”.
Despite their promotion, Norwich City FC were not so successful in their League or FA cup campaigns, disappointingly exiting in the third round of both tournaments to Preston and Shrewsbury respectively.
The future looks bright for the team, with plans to add some new signings this summer, though Neil plans to “Stick with the hardcore group of the squad”.
