Our groundsman Graham Hilton received a lifetime achievement award for his tireless work over decades both for the club and Norfolk RFU. In recognition of this, he was treated to a day at Twickenham on the day of the England v Italy game.

His itinerary included a tour of the ground, lunch before the game and dinner with the players and officials afterwards. He received his award from England Coach Eddie Jones.

We are delighted that Graham had such a great day and the photographer even managed to get him to smile, occasionally!

Well done Graham, richly deserved.

Our favourite restaurant in Norwich, The Last Wine Bar on St Georges Street, has been bought by a consortium of four investors including our Club members and sponsors, Mark Loveday and Mark Duffy. The owner was retiring and the four customers decided to pitch in and invest in the business.

We look forward to future developments.

Latest 1st XV Match Report

Saffron Walden 29 Norwich 22 - 09/03/2019

Norwich’s roller coaster season continued with another game that they should have won, being allowed to slip from their grasp. They lead until the last 15 minutes but can have little complaint over the result, having lacked the control, game management or, in stark contrast to last week, defensive capabilities to secure the win. The result means that the hosts leap-frog Norwich in the league to take a 3 point advantage and fourth position from them, although they have to face the top two s.....
