Special banners to feature fans at Carrow Road

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.



GET INVOLVED

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 your.story@canaries.co.uk.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be sharing a number of stories here on canaries.co.uk. Jo Edye and Cally Smith continue the story, having been season ticket holders since 2004.

JO EDYE & CALLY SMITH

"You get caught up in it – you just go to watch a game of football, and then the next minute you're jumping up and down, screaming and shouting.

"I grew up in a town called Chichester on the south coast. My nearest ground was Portsmouth, and they were in the Third Division then. My best friend supported Manchester United, so I just followed Manchester City so we could have a bit of rivalry! When I left Chichester, I travelled around a bit and I ended up in Norwich.

"I lost interest in football for a few years, but then I got back into it when I settled up here. It's just a way of life in Norfolk. I started off as a football fan watching football, but then I became a fan of Norwich because I loved watching them, particularly on their run to winning the Milk Cup in 1985 - from that moment on, I was hooked. It's always been a club that has played proper football, and I've always appreciated that.

"My wife is a big fan – she started going before I was with her, but we now go together. She wasn't a football fan at all when she was young, but she loves it now.

"Because I'm a season-ticket holder, I feel I'm contributing something financially to the Club. It's nice to feel that you can give something back. Everybody loves Norwich, we're really popular.

"Nobody has a bad thing to say about Norwich City Football Club and that's a great thing. We've got such a good reputation.

"I follow Manchester City and I'm really pleased with their recent success, but when it comes to Norwich and Manchester City – it's Norwich all the way, no question. I love going to the football. I wouldn't stop now."
