Norwich sign Quakers defender
Norwich City have signed Darlington full-back Paul Heckingbottom on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old had reached the end of his contract at Feethams and has been given the chance to make the grade in Division One by Canaries boss Nigel Worthington.

"I am absolutely over the moon. To move to a club as up and coming as Norwich is great. It is clearly a good time to join.

"I saw the facilities and was really impressed. They are spot on.

"The footballing differences between playing at Darlington and playing at Norwich are already clear. I just want to get out there and prove myself," Heckingbottom told City's website.

The defender started his career with Sunderland but made his League debut on loan at Scarborough.

He also had loan spells at Hartlepool and Darlington before joining the Quakers on a permanent basis three years ago.

He started more than 100 League games for the north-east side and missed just a couple of games under Tommy Taylor last season.
