Canaries Down Under supporters' match enjoyed by all

THE FIRST 'Old Farm' Down Under derby took place last Saturday as City supporters from as far afield as Brisbane and New Zealand converged on Sydney's Centennial Park to take on their Ipswich counterparts.

In a strong turnout, seventeen Canaries played in a thrilling, end-to-end battle that ended in a stunning 5-5 draw as the Yellows fought back an incredible three times to snatch a draw with a minute left of the game.

"It was a heck of a game," said Norwich captain Mark Larwood, who himself had flown in from Auckland, New Zealand to play in the game.

In the build up, the Canaries had chosen to support two charities - Norwich City Community Sports Foundation in the UK, and Beyond Blue in Australia.

"The game was contested in a great way, with fantastic sportsmanship from both sides and the support we had from the touch line was first class.

"Everyone on the pitch can be very proud of how we performed, and it's great to have been able to raise money for some great causes too."

Many thanks to Mark Larwood of Canaries Down Under for the match report.
