Former Norwich City forward Darren Huckerby says he is ‘incredibly disappointed’ after his son was sentenced to 3 years in a young offenders institute.
The Canaries legend released a statement after son Benjamin, 18, was handed the sentence following his involvement in a spate of armed robberies in January this year.
The statement read:
“We made our home in Norwich because we fell in love with the city, county and people when we arrived in 2003.
“I have always tried to pay back some of the welcome by trying to hold the highest standards on and off the pitch, helping the local community when I can and through things like the charitable trust we set up.
“So as a family we are incredibly disappointed and hurt by Ben’s actions, which go against everything we stand for.”
