McNamara was top scorer at Southern League Premier outfit Hitchin Town last season with 17 goals.

Tudors boss Dean Brennan was delighted with the signing and told the Gazette: “He’s a player we’ve had our eye on over the last two seasons.

“We want him to keep doing what he’s been doing at Hitchin and at Arlesey before that.

“He’s a goalscorer from wide positions and he works his socks off. He’s a player who gets in the right place at the right time.”

Canaries manager Mark Burke told Hitchin’s website: “Jonny is an exciting young prospect that has served this club with great distinction and I am sure he will rise to the challenge of playing at a higher level.

“I would like to thank him for his services as he has been a great character to have within the squad and I have enjoyed working with him over the past two years. “

A Hitchin club statement confirmed an approach was made by Hemel in May and they added: “We would like to place on record how professional and respectful Hemel have conducted themselves throughout negotiations.”
