SIR JOHN HURT: 1940-2017

28 January 2017

Club saddened to hear of passing of actor and supporter

EVERYONE at Norwich City Football Club was saddened to hear of the passing of Sir John Hurt at the age of 77.

Sir John lived in north Norfolk and became strongly affiliated with the Canaries, often cheering on the team at Carrow Road as a fan and as a guest of the Directors.

The Bafta-winning actor also developed strong links in the local community as chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts and Patron of Cinema City.

At this afternoon's match, supporters will lead a moment's applause on 77 minutes and the Club would like to encourage fans of both City and Birmingham City to join in as a mark of respect to Sir John and his family.
