The CWC: what a competition and what a final. Given his past misdemeanours, Ben Stokes might have to wait for that knighthood but it will come in the end. Just ask Sir Geoffrey.
The Ashes: despite Stokes at Headingley, it...Continue Reading

During Norwich City’s last exploration into the Premier League, the Under 23’s enjoyed some healthy attendances with crowds at the Carra reaching up to 4,000 when some of the ‘big’ six clubs rolled into the county to play the City youngsters. The last couple of seasons have seen attendances more com...Continue Reading
What a fantastic way to enjoy a promotion season, in our own back yard at Carrow Road.
