The visit from Mr Goss and Mr Martin was arranged by Rachel's partner Darran Lovell, who works at Norwich City as an Academy Goalkeeping Coach and is a member of their Football in the Community team.

“From my point of view it's not a Norwich City thing but a personal thing because I'm a personal friend of Darran's,” said Mr Goss.

Chris, who had just come back from a summer break in Greece, said that he was impressed by the new haircutters and was pleased with his haircut.

After his haircut he answered questions regarding the new manager, the importance of being strong in today's game, and his run in the first team at the end of the 2006/2007

season.

He said: “I couldn't believe my luck at the time, I never really thought that I would play and I just seemed to get better and better.

“I'm generally quite confident when I step out onto the pitch but when you're getting praised and you're scoring goals you really get the confidence to do well.

“I've been working hard over the summer and I'm looking forward to trying to force

my way into the first team picture, because last season was disappointing.”

Raw is open Monday to Saturday.
