Norwich rookie determined to keep hold of his place

Rookie Norwich keeper Jed Steer insists he can save Paul Lambert money.
The Canaries boss considered buying a new shot-stopper with No.2 Declan Rudd crocked.
But Lambert gave 19-year-old Steer, an England youth international, his debut in City’s 2-1 win at West Bromwich.
And after turning in a man-of-the-match display, Steer proved an able deputy for No.1 John Ruddy, who was rested.
Steer, a Norfolk lad, said: “Bringing in someone is still a big option but hopefully I have done enough to show him I am up for it.
“The gaffer told me in the morning and it was a lot of excitement and a lot of nerves.
“I have grown up a Norwich fan so it is fantastic.
“I had a Norwich season ticket when I was five. Andy Marshall was the keeper, then Robert Green.”
