City legends reminisce with old teammates as they return to Carrow Road

11 August 2018

City legends Kevin Keelan and Kenny Foggo were reunited with their old teammates during a trip to Carrow Road.

Former Canaries goalkeeper Keelan and winger Foggo returned to the club for Norwich City’s first home game of the season today where they met with former teammates David Stringer, Bill Punton, Peter Silvester and Terry Allcock.

Keelan, who made 673 appearances for Norwich between 1963 and 1980 and still holds the Club record, was also featured on the front and inside the matchday programme.

Keelan, 77, who lives in America, said: “It’s just nice that people don’t forget you.

“When you get to see the old faces, the guys that we played with and had fun with it’s great. 

“We played with a great bunch of guys and I wouldn’t change it for the world. We had a lot of successes, we had our heartaches too, but a lot of successes.

“It is nice to reminisce and go back on old times as they really were great times.”

Despite living overseas, Keelan said he still follows the Canaries and said it is the first score he looks out for on matchdays. 

“The fans here are fantastic, they really are, and it had a lot to do with the 17 years that I was here,” he said. 

“The icing on the cake would have been a win but that’s the way it goes in football.”

Foggo, 74, who spent six seasons at Carrow Road after joining in 1967, added: “It’s nice to see the supporters because they were youngsters when we were playing. 

“When you get home you think you do miss those days because they were terrific."
