Roy's family will be guests of honour at Carrow Road

CITY can confirm there will be a minute’s applause for Roy McCrohan before Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship match against Derby County at Carrow Road (3pm).

Canary legend and Hall of Famer McCrohan passed away last week in hospital near his home in the west country at the age of 84, after a long battle against illness.

Roy is 6th in the Club’s top all-time appearances list with a mammoth 426 first team games played in 11 years of service to Norwich City between 1951 and 1962.

Playing in a variety of outfield positions, he was ever-present during the famous 1958-59 FA Cup run and helped City to lift the League Cup in his final game in 1962. During his time at Carrow Road he also featured 101 times for City Reserves.

Roy’s family are the Club’s guests of honour for the game against Derby and will join everybody in the stadium in celebrating his life, and his immense contribution to the Canary cause, with a minute’s applause prior to kick-off. Fans are advised to arrive early if they want to be sure of joining the tribute.

As the Canaries mark the 30th anniversary of the Club’s Milk Cup victory at Wembley, this weekend’s official programme for the Sky Bet Championship match with Derby County carries an exclusive interview with Wembley winner Mick Channon.

To mark the 30th anniversary reunion weekend, there will also be a full reproduction of the official programme from the 1985 Wembley final included with Saturday's programme. This bumper 132-page dual-cover souvenir issue will be priced at £4.
