Watch: Wes Hoolahan Was On Fire In Norwich’s Last Game Of The Season

Wes Hoolahan

Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan had a day to remember on the final round of this year’s Championship fixtures.

The Irish international signed off for this campaign by being named as the club’s Player of the Season, in a year that has seen the 34-year-old (35 later this month) continue to improve with age.

The Canaries had a frustrating season overall, finishing ten points behind the playoff places, but Hoolahan had a strong campaign on a personal level. As if to emphasise how much he deserved the player of the year award, the playmaker ended the season in style, scoring twice and generally being at his creative best as Norwich destroyed Queens Park Rangers at Carrow Road.

The former Shelbourne star opened the scoring for the home side with less than twenty minutes on the clock, as his drive from outside the box took a deflection off of Nedum Onuoha to give QPR keeper Alex Smithies no chance.

Hoolahan got his second (and Norwich’s fourth) in stoppage time, getting on the end of a Cameron Jerome square ball to slot home into an empty net. That brought his tally for the season to seven, his best goalscoring return since 2010

With a massive World Cup qualifier against Austria just around the corner, Ireland manager Martin O’Neill will be delighted that one of his side’s most talented players is in such good form at such a crucial period of the campaign.

All in all, not a bad day at the office for Hoolahan.
