Norwich City's Adam Drury may have played last game for club

Norwich City defender Adam Drury admits he may have played his last game for the club after 361 appearances in 11 years of service.

The 33-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, says Tuesday's testimonial victory against Celtic at Carrow Road could have been his final Canaries outing.

"That might be the last time I'll be on that pitch. If it was it wasn't a bad send-off," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"It couldn't have gone much better."

Drury joined Norwich from Peterborough United in March 2001, and made his debut in a 2-1 win over Grimsby in the old Division One.

He has experienced three promotions and two relegations in that time and is the only squad member remaining at the club from the team that won promotion to the Premier League in 2004.

The left-back enjoyed the plaudits of an 18,500-strong Carrow Road crowd as his side beat the Scottish Premier League champions 2-0.

"It was emotional. I said to my missus beforehand I was worried I may shed a few tears," he said.

"I would have got a bit of stick off the lads if I did, so I managed to fight them back.

"All these fans turned out on a Tuesday evening for a game for me. It's a bit surreal and it doesn't really sink in."

Whether Drury will remain at the club will ultimately be a decision for boss Paul Lambert.

The Scot has already released first-teamers Zak Whitbread and Aaron Wilbraham, with decisions on other players, including Drury, to follow.

"I have had a chat with him. He knows what is going on and he is thinking about a few things," Lambert told the Eastern Daily Press.external-link

"I'll see what he thinks in the next few days. Everybody knows what is happening.

"In the three years I have been here, he has been brilliant. He deserved a fitting game with Celtic and the Norwich crowd coming out."
