Norwich City defender Adam Drury enjoyed a winning night in his testimonial game against Scottish champions Celtic.

Goals from James Vaughan and Henri Lansbury secured a 2-0 win at Carrow Road. More than 18,500 fans turned out, including over 2,600 Celtic supporters. City fans also enjoyed a 15 minute cameo from former favourite Darren Huckerby, with ex players Michael Nelson, Daniel Pacheco also featuring.

It was the perfect end to Drury's eleventh full season with Norwich, having signed from Peterborough in March 2001.

Afterwards the 33 year old defender, who played for 62 minutes before being substituted, paid tribute to both sets of supporters.

'The Celtic fans provided a party atmosphere from start to finish', said Drury. 'They obviously took over the city early, and then came out in their numbers later. And that, with the thousands of Norwich fans, made for a special evening that I won't forget.

'They all bought into the evening, and both sets of players put in a good performance and a good game, and it made for a great night.

'There are a lot of people who have done a lot of things for me for this game, and I'd like to thank them all'.

Manager Paul Lambert, who's had talks with Drury about his future, said 'It's fitting for somebody who's been here for eleven years. To get Celtic down and the fanbase that they've got, it certainly make the atmosphere.

'In the three years I've been here he's been absolutely brilliant. Its a big thanks to (Celtic manager) Neil Lennon, to bring his side here, for the fans who travel eight hours from Glasgow to Norwich, you see the atmosphere they do create, they're a special group of fans'.
