Norwich v Leicester

  • Theme - Sport
  • Year - 1913
  • Location - Norwich
  • Filmmaker - Unknown


This clip is from Norwich HEART's archive film production, ‘Games, Goals and Glory’, released in 2011.

The original footage was taken in Leicester in January 1913, during an F.A. Cup First Round between Norwich F.C. and Leicester Fosse. Before the start of the match, the team captains met in the centre of the pitch and tossed a coin to decide ends. Play was hampered by snow, but the inclement weather did not stop Norwich from emerging with a 4-0 victory against Leicester. Goals were scored by Osbourne, Hughes, Woodlands and Wolstenhulme. Norwich’s success did not last long, however. The team were knocked out of the F.A. Cup in the next round, with the Bristol Rovers beating them after a second reply.

  • Please make your mind up, was this taken at Leicester or Norwich? Either way the map is wrong, as City moved to Carrow Road in 1935. In 1913 home games would have been at The Nest.By: Brian Hardy - 2752 days ago
