But Steve Rix took things one step further, by commissioning a replica of Carrow Road - made from more than 2,000 Lego bricks.

The work of online company Brickstand, the £299 stadium took more than three weeks to make and is part of a project to replicate grounds from across England.

Mr Rix had heard company owner Chris Smith, a Crystal Palace fan from Manchester, on TalkSport radio during the summer, discussing his plan to make a Lego imitation of every football stadium in the country.

“When I heard about the Lego stadiums, I thought ‘I have got to have one of those’,” said Mr Rix, a paramedic from Costessey, who does match day medical cover at Carrow Road.

“I contacted Chris, asking when he was going to do the Norwich ground. He made it for me and now I have the first one. It’s my birthday next week, so it’s a bit of a birthday present to me.”

Delivering the mini Carrow Road brought Mr Smith to Norwich for the first time in his life.

Having worked on the model using photographs, he said it felt strange to finally see the club ground. “It does feel like I have been here before,” he said.

Brickstand has already produced models of grounds including Loftus Road, Anfield and Goodison Park.

The owner of the Lego St Andrews has turned the replica into a coffee table, but Mr Rix is unsure what to do with his 70cm x 55cm x 15cm Carrow Road.

He said he originally thought about hiring it out for children’s birthday parties, but soon changed his mind.

“It wouldn’t come back,” said Mr Rix. “And my daughter is definitely not playing with it. It’s too expensive for that.”
