THE Football Association are today writing to David Norris asking for an explanation regarding his goal celebration at Blackpool.

Norris crossed his arms after netting the winner and admitted it was a private message to his jailed friend Luke McCormick.

The gesture has angered upset family and friends of the two boys killed by McCormick with mother Amanda Peak calling for Norris to be banned.

An FA spokesman today said: “We have written David Norris asking him to explain his actions. We look forward to his response.”

Although the incident is unlikely to be mentioned in referee Clive Webster's report the FA could hit Norris with a disrepute charge and the player is also facing punishment from Ipswich Town.
