I am delighted to let you know that Andy Pott has been confirmed as the winner of the Eastern Counties Volunteer of the Year Award for 2017. He will be presented with his award at the Eastern Counties Annual Dinner at Shelford Rugby Club on the 30th June.

His commitment to the Club has been immense. This is clearly a well deserved award and it is great that his commitment to Norwich has been recognised by Eastern Counties.

With summer ahead, probably the last thing you want to think about is next season but, if it helps your planning, the 1st XV fixtures are now posted on the appropriate page. They sit below last season's fixtures which will remain until we delete the match reports. We won't do that just yet because it makes the website look a bit bare. Cup details TBC.


Well done to Lisa Snary for organising a fantastic end of season party with as inflatable assault course, pole joust, tug of war, hog roast and ice cream. A great night was had by all and a great way to sign off for the summer.

Unusually there was no score in the first half with neither side being able to establish ascendency over the other. Ipswich’s left wing was yellow carded for not using his arms in the tackle an offence he rep.....
