DARREN Huckerby will be put through his paces tomorrow when he begins his off-season training - with Lowestoft Town.

The former Canaries winger is back in the UK for around four months before returning to San Jose Earthquakes in the MLS next year.

He is unable to train with the current Norwich City squad, but found the gates of Crown Meadow wide open - and with some familiar faces waiting for him. His former City team-mate, defender Craig Fleming, helps coach the Ridgeons Premier Division leaders, while Dave Carolan, the former City sports scientist who now works with Colchester United, will also be putting the players through their paces.

Those players include former Norwich midfielder Cedric Anselin and ex-City reserve team player Damian Hilton, who has signed for the Blues after quitting as Wroxham manager.

“They're a good bunch of lads who work hard and Hucks will benefit from a run-out with them,” said Fleming.

“Dave will start off with some warm-up stuff and then I'll get stuck into them - it'll be nice to come up against Hucks again.”
