Perhaps rather irrationally, I have been a
supporter of Norwich City Football Club for
over 40 years. Here I will be building a club
records section and giving you my
reminiscences of the good and bad times of the
varied, here are my sporting memories and
various articles including a lengthy piece on
coaching and running youth football teams
which I hope you will find amusing.
I will be
building a full section on sports records. So
if you want to know who won the Wimbledon
tennis championships in 1963, this will be the
place to find out.
Do We Do It?
have been involved with local football for
more years than I care to remember. I suppose
my interest stems from my first job as a local
reporter covering Lowestoft Town in the then
Eastern Counties League in the early 1970s.
Subsequent journalistic moves saw me cover the
fortunes of Sheringham Town, Cromer Town,
Beccles, Wymondham Town and Hethersett
Athletic to name but a few. I have also, in
the line of my work, reported on Chesterfield,
Nottingham Forest and Norwich City for a
variety of radio stations and newspapers. My
involvement with football shows no sign of
diminishing. I am currently chair of
Hethersett Athletic and a member of the
Norwich City Supporters Consultative Group.
Recently I was looking through some old local
football programmes and came across an article
written for Wymondham Town which I think still
sums up the appeal of local football. To read
