Chris and Tom Beardmore: season ticket holders since 1969/2006

NORWICH City will be visually celebrating our brilliant fans next season, and this is your chance to be a part of it.

With the Club recently releasing season tickets for next season, we are asking you, our fans, for your stories. We want to know what it means to you to be a Norwich City fan, how it feels when you're at Carrow Road or following the team away, and any memorable tale you've picked up along your journey as a Canary.

By sharing your story, you’ll have the chance to feature on special banners that we'll be placing around Carrow Road from the start of next season to celebrate the wonderful support you give us.


To have the chance to feature, all you need to do is share your story or favourite memory using #YourStory on either Twitter or Facebook, or by emailing it to us at

Over the coming weeks, we'll be sharing a number of stories here on Father and son Chris and Tom Beardmore tells their stories, having been season ticket holders since 1969 and 2006 respectively.


"Tom is a massive fan – he's now started to go to all the away games on Club Canary with his mates. I feel a bit left out sometimes! He loves it though and I'm really pleased for him. He's never been tempted to support a bigger club - that's a definite no, he's Norwich City only!

"Going to games together means a lot. Our Saturdays wouldn't be the same. We miss it when it's the close season because it's our time together. We have exactly the same routine: we always park in the same place, walk in the same way and listen to Radio Norfolk on the way back. It's just something we do for us.

"Carrow Road means a lot to people. When you compare Carrow Road to somewhere like Stamford Bridge even, there's something special about going there. We've all been to some of the biggest stadiums, but Carrow Road is unique. There's an intimate feeling, especially when it's under the floodlights.

"My mum and dad weren't Norwich City supporters at all. They followed them but they didn't ever encourage us as kids to watch football, but my brother and I went and we got hooked. I've seen all the ups and downs and enjoyed every part, even when we were in League One.

"There's a special bond between Norwich season-ticket holders and the club. As long as Tom and I can do it, we will always be part of it."
