NORWICH TAKE ON Middlesbrough in this season’s Championship play-off final on Monday night and one famous face has jumped on the Canaries’ bandwagon.

Snoop Dogg is in Norfolk and performed at Radio 1′s Big Weekend at Earlham Park earlier today while wearing a distinctive fashion accessory: a Norwich jersey.
