Ron Saunders: 1932 - 2019

8 December 2019

Norwich City FC are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ron Saunders, who managed the club between 1969 and 1973.

Ron guided the club to promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in 1972 by winning the Second Division title. He also led City to the League Cup final a year later.

Our thoughts are with Ron’s family and friends at this difficult time.

There will be a period of remembrance prior to our match against Sheffield United on Sunday (2pm KO) for Ron. Daniel Farke's team will also wear black armbands.
