Price is right for Norwich City's party-poopers
Carlisle United didn't hang around long after doing their best to spoil Norwich City's party on Saturday. As the champagne corks popped, Greg Abbott and his players were on the bus, ready for the long haul back to Cumbria.
Carlisle United didn't hang around long after doing their best to spoil Norwich City's party on Saturday.
As the champagne corks popped, Greg Abbott and his players were on the bus, ready for the long haul back to Cumbria.
All except Jason Price: as the bus headed one way, he was dragging a suitcase behind him as he walked along Koblenz Avenue, heading for the station and the train to London.
The on-loan striker returned to his parent club Millwall, having done his bit on the final day - thanks to his distinctive hair-style - and ready to pop up again in the play-offs, with the Lions facing Huddersfield in the semi-finals.

"Like I say, we'll just have to wait and see."
Price was adamant the second goal was his, claiming an assistant on Ian Harte's free-kick in the seventh minute.
"We got off to a great start, and then the free kick came in from Hartey and I just managed to get a bit of my hair onto it," he said.
"It's definitely my goal because the touch from my hair was enough to get it past the keeper."
Harte wasn't quite as convinced.
"I knew as soon as I took it that it was going in," he said.
"It was one of those where the keeper was in two minds about what to do, so he was caught in the middle a bit.
"I spoke to him afterwards and he wasn't sure whether Pricey had got anything on it or not, but he has claimed it, so he must have got a touch.
"In all honesty, it doesn't matter, because we have won the game.
"It doesn't matter who gets the goal, as long as someone does, so it's all just friendly banter."
