Will Norris is certain that his horrific suffering at the close of the previous season did not cause any long-term harm.
The Pompey goalkeeper also discussed how joining the club helped him get over his heartbreaking and historic play-off loss.

When Sheffield Wednesday miraculously overcame a 4-0 first-leg deficit to defeat Peterborough 5-1 and get to the League One play-off final on penalties last season, Norris was the guy facing criticism.

Norris was floored in his final game on loan with the Posh, leaving a four-goal gap that has never been overcome.
Norris believes he has learned from the experience and has no long-term confidence difficulties, as evidenced by his strong start at Pompey.

“We didn’t think it would go like that,” he added of the season’s abrupt end.

Therefore, you must accept it for what it is.

You must take what you’ve learned into account because if you don’t keep learning and growing, you won’t get any better.

Norris outlined how completing a move from Burnley to Pompey after the agony of the dramatic play-off loss proved to be a helpful step in the healing process.

This summer, the 30-year-old was the first player to arrive, sparking a frenzied flurry of transfer activity that resulted in the arrival of 14 new players.

The keeper had an exciting focus as the move to a team he has always liked picked up speed while Norris was on vacation.

Norris continued, “I left right away and gave myself a couple of weeks.

Then, however, you must immediately return to it.

“The season will soon arrive, and this time you must be prepared.”

“I had to return from vacation to sign, but I was pretty much the first one through the door here.”

The excitement of what the manager then pitched to me and the size of the club came next.

“I am aware of Portsmouth, and I remember when they were big.”

It helped that I’ve always had a soft spot for the club and that I’ve always wanted to play for it.
