CLUB TO PAY TRIBUTE TO PETER OLDFIELD ON SATURDAY

6 April 2017

Canary legends remember popular staff member

NORWICH City will pay its respects to long-serving member of staff Peter Oldfield on Saturday following his sad passing last month.

Peter was a valued colleague on matchdays for many years, with his enthusiasm and love for Norwich City shining through in various roles behind the scenes at home games.

A picture of Peter will be displayed on the big screen at Carrow Road shortly before kick-off and during the game against Reading City's players will wear black armbands in his memory.

Canary heroes Steve Bruce and Paul Lambert were among those to have paid tribute, with Bruce saying: "He was a great man, Pete, and I’m saddened to hear that he has passed away and I would like to wish all the family and give them my condolences.

"It has really upset me because when I went there 35 years ago, Pete was there. And every time I’ve been back, he never seemed to change."

Lambert added: "I remember Pete so well from my time at the Club, he was always there on matchdays at Carrow Road.

"He was always such a positive guy and it’s people like Pete, who work so hard behind the scenes, that make a football club. Every club needs people like Pete and I was very happy to see him again when I came back to Carrow Road for our game in January.

"It’s really sad news and my thoughts are with all of his family and friends."

Peter will be sorely missed by everyone at Norwich City and our thoughts and best wishes are with his family and loved ones.
