With a week to go before NCFC line up against Cardiff City at Carrow Road and City fans would have been hoping for some new faces in the starting line up come 1500 next Saturday. However as is normal these days with a last day transfer window the only NCFC business was to loan out 3 players to get some first team experience. The arrival of Nelson Oliveira to fill the vacant number 9 shirt was greeted with the usual mixed views from the Canary fans. Only time will tell how good this guy is and let's hope he nets 10-15 [...]
City announce that Kyle Lafferty will be joining the club on July 1st for an undisclosed fee.

The fixture computer has NCFC away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on the 10th Aug live on Sky at 1600. Trips to Rotherham, Millwall, Brentford and Bournemouth are in stark contrast to last seasons fixture list. The chance to lock horns with 1p5wich town comes around very quickly. 23 Aug will see the yellow army back in Suffolk and maybe another 5-1 thrashing of the poor neighbours hopefully. The final game of the season is against Fulham at home, let's hope we don't need any points for promotion that day.
Three lungs returns to Carrow Rd on the coaching staff for next season. Gary last played for NCFC 10 years ago. His coaching style will hopefully bring some much need discipline and desire back into the heart of the players.
We welcome Lewis Grabbon to the club and wish him a long and successful time at NCFC. Lewis is Neil Adams first signing of many hopefully before the start of the season on AUG 9TH.
