Justin shared that he along with Ed Sheeran "swapped shirts" at the end and posed for a snap in their rival team's colours.

He said: "It started off as a lovely kickabout and then when the whistle went, it became quite a stern test! I think everybody was taking it very seriously! But I was grateful for the chance to play, because how many times do you get to play to tens of thousands of people in your home county, and have a good kickabout on the day as well? It was great day, I really enjoyed it.

"And the funny thing was me and Ed Sheeran swapped shirts at the end too. There is a photo that's not been published - nor will ever be published - of me in an Ipswich shirt and him in a Norwich shirt. You'll never see that picture, it will never surface... I'm using it, I might use it to blackmail him!"
