LEE CLARK says he’s delighted by Norwich City’s rise to the Premier League.
The Huddersfield Town boss was assistant manager at Carrow Road before his move to the Galpharm in December 2008.
The Canaries clinched a second successive promotion by winning 1-0 at Portsmouth on Monday.
“Paul Lambert has done a terrific job, and I’m really pleased for all the people at Norwich,” said Clark.
“It’s a terrific club and a lot of hard work has gone on behind the scenes down there.
“The success of the last couple of seasons has rewarded the loyalty of the supporters and of Delia Smith (inset) and her husband Michael Wynn-Jones, who have backed the club through thick and thin.”
Norwich last taste of the top flight was for one season only (2004-05) and chief executive David McNally vowed: “Every waking breath will now be focused on staying in the Premier League.”
