The Lancashire Post report that David Norris could be the man to help catapult Lancaster City up the NPL Premier Division table, so says manager Mark Fell.

The Dolly Blues boss pulled off a major coup ahead of last weekend’s game at North Ferriby United when he captured the midfielder, who has played more than 400 Football League games for clubs such as Leeds, Ipswich and Blackpool. The 37-year-old went straight into the team for the trip to Yorkshire and certainly had an eventful debut.

He scored and helped City opened up a 2-1 lead before being substituted with a tight hamstring after 30 minutes.

Even though he was not on the pitch for long, it was still long enough for him to show his undoubted quality as City held on the for the win.

“David only played for 30 minutes on Saturday – we had to take him off because he felt his hamstring tighten on what was quite a heavy pitch at North Ferriby,” said Fell, who has also brought in Luke Jordan, a young pacy attacker who has played in the Football League for Morecambe.

“But I tell you what, it was probably the best 30-minute cameo that I have seen. He is still head and shoulders above this level and even at 37-year-old, 38 coming up, he’s still got hunger for the game that you would not believe.”
