Team to wear black armbands at Spurs

EVERYBODY at Norwich City Football Club was deeply saddened by the death this week of our Maintenance Manager Trevor Lemmon at the age of 57 after a brave battle against cancer.

Trevor was an immensely popular, dedicated and hard-working member of the Norwich City family and since joining in 1999 has made a vital and lasting contribution to the development and maintenance of our facilities at Carrow Road and Colney.

The Lemmon family has deep roots in both Norwich City and Norfolk football. Trevor’s wife Val is P.A. to our manager Chris Hughton and has served a long line of Norwich City managers in this key role over the years.

They have two sons, Matthew and Gavin. Matthew is a member of our maintenance team at the Club and Gavin previously worked for Football in the Community (now the Community Sports Foundation) before taking up his current role at the Norfolk Football Association.

The thoughts of everyone at the Club are with the Lemmon family at this time. At the request of our players, the Club has sought and received permission from the Premier League for the team to wear black armbands in our game at Spurs on Saturday as a mark of respect and remembrance for Trevor.
