Your guide to the must-read features in Saturday's programme

FROM an exclusive first big interview with young City star Ben Godfrey to pieces on Robert Fleck and Asa Hartford, we take you inside the latest OTBC official matchday programme for City’s match against Blackburn Rovers.

OTBC covers everything you need to know about the day's opponents as well as up-to-date news, stats, tables and content. But it also much more than a matchday experience, with a host of magazine-style features which can be enjoyed at any time. 

The latest OTBC is stuffed full of brilliant content, including…

"I lived in an area where football on the street was so common. Every night kids would be out playing so it was easy to get involved"
Cover interview: Ben Godfrey on how he got into football, his breakthrough season, hopes for the future and learning to cook

"Top of the singles charts was Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart – apt given Robert Fleck became a Norwich legend for me that day"
My Favourite Player: Writer Ben East picks City striking legend Robert Fleck

"One of my very first games for Norwich was against Preston in the Milk Cup. It was a midweek replay – I think we’d drawn with them away from home. We beat them 6-1 at Carrow Road and I managed to hitch a ride back on the Preston team coach because in those days I lived in Wilmslow!"
First, Best, Worst: Wembley hero Asa Hartford talks to us about his City career

"1848 was a year of revolution. Kings and queens faced political upheaval as a wave of democratic spirit surged across Europe. But a revolution of a different kind also began in the unlikely location of Cambridge; one which would breathe real life into the beautiful game forever"
When football began: the story of a Norwich’s fan’s global project to celebrate the first written rules of football  

"At the other end of the style spectrum are the managers who get fully suited and booted, as if they’re attending a family wedding. Some carry it off better than others; for every suave and sophisticated Roberto Martinez type there are several stressed insurance salesmen like Sam Allardyce"
Chris Goreham: Radio Norfolk’s commentator on the sartorial choices of football managers 

"They formed a formidable double-act, combining Shearer’s instinctive, predatory style and Sutton’s power and ability to hold up the ball"
Opposition in focus: we look back at when Chris Sutton and Alan Shearer led Blackburn Rovers to the title 

PLUS Norwich City results, stats, fixtures and quizzes AND our brilliant illustrative series of Norwich City’s greatest goals: this week, it’s Bradley Johnson’s piledriver against Ipswich Town
