NORWICH manager Daniel Farke dedicated his side’s promotion to the fans, despite seeing his high-flying Canaries crash to 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Cherries.

The hosts went into the game with their place in the Premier League already assured following favourable results earlier in the day and there was still a mood of celebration at Carrow Road after the game.

They were however beaten for just the second time at home in the league all season, thanks to goals from Cherries trio Sam Surridge, Arnaut Danjuma and Lloyd Kelly.

“The players and staff will celebrate following the correct protocols but I dedicate this promotion to our supporters, who unfortunately couldn’t be here to enjoy it,” Farke said.

“Like everyone in the country they have gone through a lot over the last year – and some have suffered some really tough times.

“Hopefully we have brought some joy into the lives, some happiness at a time when it has been very difficult for them. This one is for them.

“It was a strange way to win promotion – but it was thoroughly deserved, there is no doubt about that.”
