Marcus Kranz

Norwich Career:  Trial (December 2000)
Current Club: FC Junkersdorf (Germany)
Date of Birth: 04/08/1969
Nationality: German


German leftback Markus Kranz played for Norwich reserves in their 2-0 victory over Colchester on 18th December 2000. Then with Dutch side Emmen, Markus began his career at Kaiserslauten and has also played for Bayer Uerdingen, Dynamo Dresden and Fortuna Koln.

Injured whilst on trial at Norwich, he felt that he was unable to truly show his talents to the Norwich management but his current locations suggests that he wasn't suitable for the Canaries. Markus rejoined Fortuna who were now playing in the regionalised German Fourth Division. He combined this with studying to be a physiotherapist.

Markus has moved to FC Junkersdorf where fellow former Canary triallist Dirk Hebel was Director of Football. They won promotion via a playoff game after finishing second in the local "Verbandsliga" and go up to the regionalised "Oberliga" - fourth division. It has been reported in the local press that Kranz, who is studying
physiotheraphy in Cologne, will stay with club next season.
