Simply The Best. Adam Drury.
Adam Drury’s mammoth duration at Norwich City has finally come to an end as of today, with the left-back agreeing to join Leeds United as of July 1st.
A truly exceptional individual in every aspect is Mr. Drury. It’s really hard to write words that do him justice, I guess in a sense, he’s a man you look up to. I may be some dumb hack with a keyboard and a brain clogged full of superlatives, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who sees Drury as a role model. I think for a young player coming through, Adam would have been one of the ones to look upto. Well, actually, I’m sure he’ll still be one of the ones to look upto when he’s at Leeds. 11 years is phenomenal, to spend that duration at a club is phenomenal it really is.
I think more so, you’ve got to look at what those 11 years held within. It wasn’t like he’d been at a club for that duration and enjoyed steady consistent league positions. Drury has had a rollercoaster ride at Norwich City, he’s seen our darkest ebb and played a massive part in a Hollywood blockbuster rise. Drury has kept himself up to the challenge, year after year whilst also being the model professional all the way. Well, I reckon if you looked up ‘model professional’ or words to that effect in the dictionary, then Adam Drury’s face would be plastered underneath it. Not once did you see the lad step out of line, he’d give his all for the side and was just Mr. Dependable in that full-back slot. You’d expect the best of him, he set himself performance levels that more often than not he’d meet but you’d notice when he didn’t – an accolade in itself.
Really, I don’t think I need to say much. What Drury has done, the person he is – it all speaks for itself. To close I guess we speak about that testimonial. I think for Adam to end his career at Norwich City like that, well it was brilliant. I believe the phrase ‘going out on a high’ springs to mind. A fantastic atmosphere, Drury was his usual reliable self and even had quite a few foray forwards! He gave a speech at the end and got a rousing reception from all sides of Carrow Road. The very least he deserved for a magnificent 11 years.
So that’s Adam Drury, an exceptional person, an exceptional full-back and a man with an exceptional attitude. He will certainly be missed, for me, he was there at the very beginning when I started supporting Norwich City.
He’ll always be my Canary number 3.
