Match Of The Past: Norwich City

1 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   June 22, 2012  |     18

As regular readers of this site will be aware, we are delving back into the past over the course of this summer so bring you collections of videos from English footballs history. This week we’re featuring Norwich City, and we kick-off with a compilation from the clubs FA Cup run of 1959, when they reached the semi-finals of the competition as a Third Division South side. Next up is another FA Cup match, this time from 1967, and a trip to Old Trafford to play Manchester United. We then skip forward to the 1979/80 season and a First Division match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Relegation followed the season after, and relegation was also on the cards for the club at the end of the 1984/85 season, but they did get some consolation from a disappointing season with an appearance in the League Cup final which ended in the clubs second – and to date last – major trophy win. We finish up with an unlikely live televised match from the First Division during the 1988/89 season away to Millwall and a match from the first weekend of the Premier League in August 1992, when the Canaries travelled to Highbury to play Arsenal.
