A bizarre tribute to Norwich City legend Darren Huckerby was spotted at Ally Pally last night.

The sign was spotted as Fallon Sherrock became the first ever female player to win a match at the PDC World Championship, recording a 3-2 victory over Ted Evetts.

The 25-year-old was cheered on by a partisan crowd as she came from behind to make history at Alexandra Palace.

However, as Sherrock began her walk to the oche, a City related sign was captured behind her, reading 'Hucks is a legend - we miss you!'.

Huckerby made 203 appearances for City over a five-year period, scoring 48 goals. His time with the Canaries ended sourly, with ex-City boss Glenn Roeder releasing him at the end of the 2007/08 season.

Huckerby moved to the United States, where he played until he retired.

City have history of these signs emerging on social media, after a picture of ex-Canaries midfielder Bradley Johnson holding a sign that read 'Barton, your breath stinks' was posted on social media.

Bradley Johnson famously passed comment to ex-QPR midfielder Joey Barton at the darts. Picture: TwitterBradley Johnson famously passed comment to ex-QPR midfielder Joey Barton at the darts. Picture: Twitter

That sign emerged after City played QPR back in 2011, where a flashpoint between Joey Barton and Bradley Johnson saw the Rangers midfielder sent off.
