Norwich City get place in Premier League!

The Norwich City team celebrate promotion

Norwich City fans are celebrating after their team was promoted back into the Premier League after six years!

The Canaries beat Portsmouth 1-0 on Monday with a goal from Simeon Jackson.

Norwich City went up after their main rivals Cardiff City lost 3-0 at home to Middlesbrough.

It's a remarkable rise for Norwich City as they started the 2009-10 season in League One - so they have gone up two leagues in two years! This was last done in 2000 by Manchester City.

"It's a miracle, an absolute miracle," manager Paul Lambert said. "It's unbelievable what has happened to us in the last two years. I never thought this was going to happen."
