The pair were at the Willis building in Ipswich on Tuesday to mark Willis Towers Watson taking on the sponsorship of the Junior Blues, and played football with a group of young supporters in the building's rooftop garden.

Norwood then took the microphone to interview Chambers for the club's social media channels and, after attempting to break his captain with questions about his age and highlighting the error which ultimately cost Town the win against Sunderland, the Ipswich skipper eventually got the upper hand when he suggested Norwood needed to be more clinical in front of goal.

Norwood has scored five of Ipswich's 16 league goals this season, from a total of 32 chances.

JN: Chambo, thanks for joining us. How do you think the season's gone so far?

They've got themselves involved in a bit of extracurricular activity, making wrestling debuts etc, but it's been positive.

LC: You have to take the Sunderland one out of it, you take that on the chin and move forward.

But we've had five clean sheets in a row and we're not too bad at the back there.

JN: You're looking great for your age. How do you feel?

LC: I feel fantastic, thank you. The sun's been helping, obviously and I feel good.

Age is a number and I'm feeling we're in good form at the back and the boys are doing well. Willo (James Wilson) has come in and has been fantastic and Wolfy (Luke Woolfenden) has take to it like a duck to water. The big man in the goal (Tomas Holy) is doing very, very well. We're looking strong.

JN: What do you see this next month bringing?

LC: Points. The only thing on our minds is winning games, as you know.

If we could just take a few more of our chances it will make things a bit less nervy for the fans.

JN: Clean sheets, are you going to start keeping them?

LC: Well, we'll take the previous five into the next five and see where that takes us.

JN: I think we could do with taking a few more chances if I'm honest…. You've seen me off!

I was trying to do it semi-seriously and you've chucked it out with that one! No!
