Carrow Road to pay respect to former Manager

NORWICH City can confirm there will be tributes at Carrow Road to former Manager John Bond at both tonight’s Capital One Cup game against Doncaster Rovers and Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match against Liverpool.

Bond, who led City from 1973 to 1980, played a pivotal role in establishing Norwich as a top-flight club in the 1970s after taking over from Ron Saunders.

For tonight’s game against Doncaster there will be a minute’s silence before kick-off at 7.45pm and both sides will wear black armbands as a mark of respect for the charismatic and successful former Canary boss, who was an accomplished player at West Ham and also managed Manchester City, Burnley, Swansea City and Shrewsbury Town.

Then on Saturday prior to kick-off against Liverpool at 3pm, there will be a minute’s applause to celebrate the life and achievements of a City legend and Hall of Fame member.

Bond’s contribution to Norwich City was massive and everyone at the Club will miss him and wishes to pass on condolences to John’s family – including son Kevin who made 161 appearances for the Canaries – and his many friends in football.
