Former City striker would have been 53 today

TODAY we remember City legend and Canary Hall of Fame member Justin Fashanu who would have been 53 today.

Justin scored 40 goals in 103 appearances in all competitions for the Canaries between 1978 and 1981, including the BBC Goal of the Season against Liverpool in February 1980.

He died tragically in 1998 aged just 37 and his experiences in the game serve as an inspiration in the fight against homophobia and all forms of discrimination within football.

RIP Justin from all at Norwich City Football Club.
