The quote reads: "Going in one more round when you don't think you can - that's what makes all the difference in life!"

Finn and his father got the quote framed to give to the school.

Finn said: "I thought it would be a good idea as I'd just been elected sport captain at school.

"I wrote to Norwich City and asked for an inspirational quote and a week later I got a reply. I was amazed."

Mr Harper added: "We were both a bit shocked when it arrived in the post.

"It's such a good quote really, and it's from one of my favourite films as well."

Mr Harper said his tweet had been seen by 17,500 people.
