He signed a contract until the end of the 1998/99 season on 10th
September. Andy Marshall's knee injury at the end of 1998 gave
Michael an extended run in the first team. In total 9 appearances
Michael was released by the Canaries on 10th May 1999. Sport
First reported on 18th July 1999 that Michael was having a
trial with York City. The Unofficial
