Can you help on Sunday 27 January?
15 Jan 2019
 
The Mini Section of the club is organising our NCHC Mini tournament on Sunday 27th January - all day - with girls U10s and U12s in the morning and Boys U12s in the afternoon (whilst Jim Pallister is organising an U14 Boys Cup Game from about 1/1.30pm). We will organise an U10 boys tournament on a separate date. We didn't hold one last season due to weather, availability of pitches, etc so its important that, as a Norfolk Club with one of the biggest Mini Sections, we do our bit. 
 
By the availability that is coming in from our own NCHC mini players, we will be out in force with 4-5 teams in each of the three age groups.  
 
All senior club members and our junior players are totally invaluable at events like this and I would be incredibly grateful for any help you feel you might be able to give - on or off the pitch. We will need umpires, coaching umpires (to shadow the less experienced youth development leaders who are keen to take part) some extra coaches, managers, help in the kitchen, behind the bar, on the BBQ, running the cake stall, etc, etc. Lingy may be in touch separately with our club umpires as he has kindly offered to put together a timetable. 
 
I look forward to hearing from you either way and hope, very much, that you might be able to spare a bit of time - please let me know what times work for you so that I can put a timetable of helpers together to see where there are likely to be gaps. We will be starting from 8.30am with clubhouse/pitch organisation and breakfast and probably going on until about 5pm (and clearing up after that!!). 
 
Very many thanks

Heroic U18s bow out in East Region Indoor Tournament
17 Dec 2018
 
Norwich City's u18 Boys team performed heroically in tough circumstances at the East Regional Tournament at Culford on Sunday to finish third. Having qualified for the National Finals in the last three seasons, and winning the Norfolk Championship last month, hopes were high this year. However, the timing of this event decimated squad availability and it was a struggle even to get a team out. 
 
City played the first game one player short against Old Loughts and almost caused an upset, scoring first and hitting the post twice, before a late rally from Old Loughts gave them a flattering 4-1 win. Back to full strength for the second game (but with no subs) we took the lead, before a strong IES side capitalised on a flurry of green and yellow cards to end up 5-2 winners. Finally, with only pride to play for in the last game, our exhausted boys came back to win 4-3 against Saffron Walden with a show of real fight and skill. 
 
Whilst the boys will be disappointed not to qualify this year, they should be extremely proud of the way they played. The squad was: Ben Millett, Cameron Cooke, George Harrad, Harry Paterson, Ben Withers and Harry Basset

U18 Boys Win Norfolk Indoor Championship
24 Nov 2018
 
Last night our u18 Boys retained the title of Norfolk U18 Indoor Champions in an exciting competition at Norwich School. First up, City had a tight match against a skilled and tenacious Magpies team. City went ahead twice through Cameron Cooke and Dan Phillips, only for Magpies to equalise both times, before Harry Paterson scored the winner in a 3-2 victory. Man of the Match was goalie Ben Millet who was quick off the line and thwarted several Magpies short corners. 
 
The second match was all out attack against a less experienced but resilient Norwich Dragons side. City won 9-3 with hattricks for Cameron and Dan, two to Ben Withers and one for Tom Bailey. Man of the match was skipper Dan. City go on to the East Indoor Competition which takes place at Culford School on Sunday 16 December. 
 
Finally, well done to the City U16 Boys team who showed real promise in their first indoor competition. City narrowly lost to Dragons and only a very late goal denied them victory against Magpies. However, the boys played with real spirit and got better and better as the competition went on.
