DAVID Norris admits he has been bowled over by Ipswich Town.

The former Plymouth Argyle midfielder, who joined Town in a £2m deal on transfer deadline day, said: "It's a new life here for me and that is a little nerve-wracking at the start.”

Norris, one of five new additions to the Ipswich squad, said: “It's a bit similar to your first day at school, but the lads have made us all feel at home.

"It's a million miles from what I have been used to though. This is a very professional football club. The preparation for games, the training facilities, the indoor pitch, the stadium - they are all first class.”

Speaking in today's matchday programme, Norris continued: "Everything is done to the highest standards. That is important and it also limits your excuses.

"The preparation is so good that you then have to take responsibility if performances are not up to the standard they should be."
