REG FOULKES 1923-2014

26 November 2014

Club saddened by death of former defender

NORWICH City Football Club is saddened to hear of the passing of former defender Reg Foulkes at the age of 91.

Shrewsbury-born Foulkes was the first signing of manager Norman Low when he joined the Club from Walsall in 1950, and made a total of 238 appearances for the Canaries, scoring eight times during a six-year spell.

Arguably his greatest moment came in 1954, when he formed a crucial part of the Division Three South side which produced a historic FA Cup Fourth Round victory over reigning champions Arsenal at Highbury.

After leaving Norwich in 1956, Reg moved into non-league circles with Wisbech Town and King’s Lynn before returning to Shrewsbury to qualify as an accountant ahead of retiring.

Everybody at Norwich City would like to send their sincere condolences to Reg’s family and friends at this time. 

Those attending City's match with Reading at Carrow Road on November 29 will be asked to remember Reg with a minute's applause ahead of kick-off in his memory.
