Life Long Fan Passes Away

A  life long City fan collapsed as he came out of Carrow Road on Saturday after the draw with Southampton,  passed away the next day of a heart condition at the N&N.

Geoffrey Riches 86, from Fakenham, a season ticket holder at Norwich for more than 60 years and active supporter of many sports.

Tributes have been paid by those who knew him well; one close  friend said she recalls how Mr Riches, once said he would be happy to die at Carrow Road. 

He was very close to getting his wish, we don't know if Mr Riches left any children or other relatives,  but we wish all those who knew him our sympathies.

A very long serving loyal supporter,  a member of the Yellow Army, so will be missed.
