Goalkeeping coach Paul Crichton is leaving Norwich City.
Crichton was not at today's League One game against Brighton and the Canaries enlisted the help of former Woking goalkeeper Lawrence Batty to assist with the pre-match preparations.
A club spokesman confirmed Crichton's exit in a statement which read: “Paul is in the process of leaving the club. It is all amicable.

“In the light of this we needed some goalkeeping cover for the day and Lawrence Batty has kindly agreed to step in. Lawrence worked with Paul Lambert at Wycombe and we thank him for helping us out today.”
Crichton, who spent three years as a player with the Canaries, was brought in as goalkeeping coach by former manager Bryan Gunn early in 2009.

Gunn, Stuart Murdoch - for just two days - and Tommy Wright all filled the post before Crichton's arrival.
